Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias 2016 Summit

Bethesda, Maryland

29 – 30 March 2016

Did you know the U.S. National Alzheimer’s Project Act covers Lewy body, frontotemporal, vascular, and mixed dementias, as well? It does, and in March, scientists gathered at the National Institutes of Health to powwow about where we are with these disorders and how best to target research dollars to them. Based on this meeting, research leaders articulated funding priorities for each of these diseases, which will inform both the next bypass budget, and, hopefully, the next Congressional funding allocation for research on these less-studied dementing illnesses.
