GMS 6757: INTRODUCTION TO ADRD: CLINICAL AND MECHANISTIC PRINCIPLES
Directors: Paramita Chakrabarty, PhD and Jose F Abisambra, PhD
Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the third leading cause of death among older adults in the United States, with current estimates exceeding 5 million affected individuals in the United States alone. Along with other related dementias (referred to as ADRD or AD related dementias), this group of diseases has an immense toll on the general health and well-being of our nation’s aging population. The overarching theme of this course is to provide comprehensive knowledge base to our next generation of trainee scientists so as to enable them to tackle the clinical and translational complexities presented by ADRD.
