Since Tau2020 was their last in-person conference, many attendees were hoping Tau2022 would be their first one back in person. Alas, it was not to be. Even so, the small virtual meeting hit some high notes as scientists focused on five major themes over two days. They debuted a phospho-tau 217 “clock” that predicts AD progression, identified LRRK2 as essential for neurons to internalize tau monomers from extracellular fluid, fingered toxic tau species as triggers of damaging immune responses, and linked tau haplotypes to errant transcriptional regulation and oxidative stress.
