There has never been such a high level of focus on biomarkers as we have today. It's fitting that Translation 2024 began with a look into the exciting developments which are emerging from this wave of research.

After a  morning workshop for Early Career Researchers which explored the resources at DPUK and elsewhere, the first full session of Translation 2024 focused on the revolution that is underway in biomarker research. 

Keynote speaker Professor Charlotte Teunissen from Amsterdam UMC reviewed what is happening and concluded with the encouraging news that plasma biomarker research into Alzheimer's Disease is really surging ahead at speed.  

Reflecting the international effort in dementia research, she was followed by Dr. Do-Geun Kim from the Korea Brain Research Institute. Research in this area is a truly global effort and the networks of academic centres involved is proving valuable in making progress.
