Alzheimer’s Disease: New Insights into the Pathogenesis, Treatment Modalities, and Translational Models
This 4.0-hour IATP Satellite Symposium will give an overview of the many aspects of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) from understanding the manifestation of clinical disease to current therapies, translational models, and gene-environment interactions. The Symposium will give an overview of clinical disease and its pathogenesis, which will include risk factors for AD and maintenance of cognitive health. The session will further explore novel therapies and approaches, and mechanisms of action of effective treatments.  Appropriate and relevant models that have comparative aspects representative and translatable to AD in human will be discussed and the pros and cons of the proposed models will be reviewed. The concept of how environmental factors interact with genetic factors, and AD and the exposome will be explored. A panel discussion will convene at the end of the speaker presentations.
