Applications to attend the 2022 Science of ADRD Conference will be accepted through July 29. Please apply via the registration link above.

The Science of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) for Social Scientists Program aims to provide social science researchers with biomedical and clinical foundations of ADRD, advance interdisciplinary collaborations, and promote data sharing. Scientific lectures by experts in various fields will be geared specifically toward a social scientist audience. Topics will reflect recent advances in science including COVID-19’s effect on brain health and updates on biomarker science. Participants will engage in an interactive learning experience and establish contacts with other social scientist scholars interested in pursuing dementia-related research through curated breakout sessions.
