As Honorary Professor of the University of Hong Kong, Professor John Gallacher will be speaking about Dementias Platform UK. The University of Hong Kong (HKU) has established HKU Alzheimer’s Disease Research Network (HKUADR Network) of the SRT Ageing, as one of the University Strategic Research Themes in 2008. The Network aims to enforce collaborative works in scientific research from public health to basic and clinical science. With the success of Alzheimer’s Disease Conference in years 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015, we organise the sixth conference this year to promote Alzheimer’s Disease research in Hong Kong.
Scientists and clinicians will share their experience in Alzheimer’s disease, from dementia and care giving, basic science and genetics in Alzheimer’s disease, to treatment and prevention, imaging and biomarkers, detection, policy, and non-pharmacological and pharmacological interventions in Alzheimer’s disease. We can learn the experience from scientists and specialists all over the world and establish collaboration via this face-to-face scientific conference. On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to participate in this important event in Hong Kong.
