General Information

This Summit addresses special research priorities for Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD), Lewy body, mixed, and vascular dementias. Organized by the NINDS, the Summit is held in response to Action Number 1.A.6 of the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease: 2017 Update.

The goal of the 2019 Summit is to review and assess the progress on the research recommendations developed by the 2013 and 2016 ADRD Summits, refine and add new recommendations based on recent scientific discoveries, solicit input from diverse stakeholders, including the public, and update priorities and timelines for addressing the Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias.

Congratulations to our ADRD Scholars

The ADRD Summit 2019 is offering a sponsored program that will pay for the expenses of up to 20 trainees located in North America to attend the Summit. These will include graduate and medical students, postdoctoral trainees, medical residents, and other individuals pursuing advanced degrees/training that are relevant for dementia research. Awardees will attend a March 13 welcome reception where they will meet other awardees and several members of the organizing committee, will attend the full Summit, and will participate in a post-Summit debriefing teleconference. This program responds to Milestone MED FA1-3 from the ADRD Summit 2016.
