Around seventy Alzheimer's and dementia professionals attended yesterday at the headquarters of Fundació ACE the conference of Professor Victor L. Villemagne, an international reference in the field of neuroimaging of the brain in aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
The lecture, which managed to fill the Foundation's auditorium, addressed the current state and main challenges of research on molecular neuroimaging biomarkers for the study and evaluation of neurodegenerative diseases.
