  • Share current findings and identify future needs for Alzheimer’s disease research in Canada;
  • Provide an up-to-date resource of research tools and experimental methods;
  • Offer an opportunity for students and residents to meet peers and Canadian leaders on Alzheimer’s disease research;
  • Promote Canadian Alzheimer’s disease research at the provincial, national and international levels
