Canadian fundamental research to improve treatment and finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease

The organizers are delighted to announce the 1st Canadian Alzheimer’s Disease Research Symposium (CANAD) held on October 2-4, 2014 in Quebec City. The meeting will take place at the Hilton hotel, located in the heart of the city and near principal tourist attractions. Québec City, a UNESCO world heritage treasure, is located along the beautiful St. Laurence River and is famous for its European charm, fortifications, and well-preserved architectural treasures. Dedicated to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia, the meeting will be devoted mainly to Canadian research, and will include fundamental, imaging and biomedical research. Researchers from coast to coast and collaborators will have the opportunity to share latest discoveries and breakthroughs from molecular mechanisms to preclinical trials. The organizers aim to provide a national official event for Canadian Alzheimer’s disease research. We count on your participation to make the CANAD 2014 symposium a great success!
