In collaboration with Dr. Reisa Sperling, Co-Principal Investigator of the Harvard Aging Brain Study (HABS), and our Mass Alzheimer’s Disease Center (MADRC) colleagues, we invite scientists working on dementia, aging and/or memory to present and discuss their current research with the MGH and HMS scientific community. We are especially interested in hosting investigators with a wide range of interests, backgrounds and experiences, and those conducting research relevant for prevention and treatment of cognitive decline and dementia.
