Registration open for the webinar “Molecular biomarkers of neurodegeneration”

Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona and Grifols, with the collaboration of Kern Pharma, continue to promote the discussion in the scientific field with the second session of the cycle of free conferences, Global Research Summit 2021.

Next Friday, May 28th, the webinar "Molecular Biomarkers of Neurodegeneration" will be dedicated to a specific area of the diagnostic and pathological process of neurodegenerative diseases by trying to update and discuss the different molecular biomarkers.

On this occasion, we will also have top-level international experts such as Dr. Henrik Zetterberg, professor and chief physician of the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the University of Gothenburg, and Dr. Michelle M. Mielke, professor of Epidemiology and Neurology at Mayo Clinic. Both speakers will update different biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

After the presentations of the two experts, those attending the second webinar of the Global Research Summit will be able to ask and debate with them in a Q&A session moderated by Dr. Charlotte Teunissen, Professor of Neurochemistry at VUmc (Amsterdam University Medical Centers). The hosts of the webinar will be Dr. Agustin Ruiz, chief scientific officer at Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona, and Dr. Mercè Boada, cofounder and Chief Medical Officer at Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona.

You can register for free at the second webinar through the Global Research Summit website.

Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona will bring together the leading experts on dementia in a series of online conferences

The program includes a series of three conferences focused on a current aspect in relation to Alzheimer's disease research and other dementias with the aim of generating participation and synergies between the panellists and those attending the webinars.

85 people of five different nationalities met on April 30th in the first webinar, a success that Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona hopes to revalidate in this second session.

Mercè Boada, medical director of Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona, explains that “Global Research Summit was born from the need to continue in constant learning even in the time of COVID-19. On many occasions, the pandemic has put a physical barrier between researchers, but thanks to new technologies knowledge can travel and continued of being transmitted to advance in the knowledge about the origin and development of dementias”.

For Agustín Ruiz, research director of Ace Alzheimer Center Barcelona, “Global Research Summit obeys the restless and innovative spirit of our centre. We have designed these three conferences with the aim of enriching professionals in the field of dementia with the latest research developments, and we will do so in a rigorous and participatory way so that it is as useful and understandable as possible for all our attendees”.
