About the event

The Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders Research Day will be held June 30 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Discovery Building on the UW-Madison campus. Keynote speaker is Paul Aisen, MD, founding director of the University of Southern California (USC) Alzheimer’s Therapeutic Research Institute (ATRI) in San Diego, an organization with the mission to accelerate the development of effective therapies for AD.

“Our annual research day plays a pivotal role in bringing together investigators of varied backgrounds to discuss and launch innovative studies in dementia," says Sanjay Asthana, MD, director of the Wisconsin ADRC. "It also provides an ideal setting for junior investigators to network and showcase their research to a large gathering of neuroscientists from across UW.”

The Alzheimer’s Disease & Related Disorders Research Day is an annual event designed to encourage collaboration and promote scientific thought among faculty, students, and researchers from a wide range of disciplines across the UW-Madison campus. The event is free, but registration is required.
