The symposium at a glance

Talks: Internationally renowned experts will present talks over the course of three days. All speakers first give a general introduction to their topic (20 min) before presenting their complex research results in detail (20 min + 10 min discussion). This format is intended to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions and, in particular, to enable early career researchers to obtain detailed information on the current state of Alzheimer's research and related areas.

Key Topics:
(I) Anti-amyloid antibody trials, outcome, meaningfulness and treatment costs
(II) New concepts in therapy
(III) Biomarkers and amyloid clearance
(IV) Basic science: amyloid structures and early aggregation steps incl. LLPS

Poster Session: We welcome abstract submissions on Alzheimer’s related topics as well as on other neurodegenerative diseases. Sponsored by Alzheimer Forschung Initivative e.V., three poster prizes will be awarded. Furthermore, speakers will give guided poster tours to selected posters.

Flash Talks : On the day of the poster session, each poster presenter has the opportunity to introduce their research within 1 minute on 1 slide during the lecture program. Goal: to arouse interest for the own poster and to network with other interested people. For the flash talk, registration is required when registering for the Düsseldorf-Jülich Symposium.

Talks by early career scientists: From the submitted poster abstracts, 5 abstracts by early career scientists who are first author of the submitted abstract will be selected for a plenary talk during the lecture program (15 minutes + 5 minutes discussion).

Public Science Lecture: 5 December 2023, organized by Alzheimer Forschung Initivative e.V

Registration: Registration is free of charge, but limited to 150 participants. Therefore, when registering, please briefly explain in the text field "motivation" why your participation in the symposium is important for your own scientific advancement.

Registration deadline: 01 November 2023
