New molecular imaging techniques and computational methods for presymptomatic identification of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is becoming a healthcare crisis. The prevalence is growing, there is no effective intervention and when treatment is provided at the dementia stage it may already be too late. Fortunately, much progress has been made in imaging and computational neuroscience along several fronts and our teams at UW-Madison are highly engaged. This talk will cover 1) A description of the AD-risk cohort studies at UW-Madison and beyond; 2) recent major advances in imaging science that promises to improve the detection and early diagnosis of AD; 3) Computational advances and algorithm development for improving the efficiency of prevention trials.

All qBio sponsored talks take place on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the 3rd floor Orchard View room of the Discovery Building unless otherwise noted. Talks are open to the public. Access to the room is via the elevator behind Aldo’s Cafe in the Northeast corner of the building.
