A meeting to transform the future of research

At Ace we work every day to make Alzheimer's history. And for this to be possible, we know the importance of research in the hunt for the origin of Alzheimer's.

Little by little we are taking steps to discover the causes that trigger the disease. This same year, the journal Nature has published an article on 75 genetic risk factors associated with Alzheimer's disease, 42 of them never before related to this type of dementia.

That is why we cannot stop promoting research. Now more than ever, when we are very close to discovering part of the puzzle that involves knowing such a complex dementia.

A unique event in collaboration with Grifols

Within the framework of the Barcelona-Pittsburgh biennial conference, Ace organizes a scientific meeting with the aim of promoting and laying the foundations for the future of genomic research in Alzheimer's disease.

"The future of research" will be held on 1st June 2022 at the Grifols Auditorium, in Sant Cugat, and is aimed at professionals in the field of scientific research, as well as companies and laboratories dedicated to research into Alzheimer's or other dementias.

Agustín Ruiz, scientific director of Ace, will debate together with other geneticists such as Pascual Sánchez-Juan, scientific director of the CIEN Foundation; and Arcadi Navarro, director of the Pascual Maragall Foundation; on the importance of research and what advances we can expect in the coming years in the knowledge of Alzheimer's.

The meeting will be led by Pere Estupinyà, biochemist, scientific communicator and presenter and director of the program "The Brain Hunter" on Spanish Television.

Likewise, the 5th Joan Boada and Mercè Rovira prize will be awarded to a researcher who has stood out for his or her professional career and has made an outstanding contribution to Alzheimer's research.

Tickets to “The future of Research” can now be purchased free of charge on the Barcelona-Pittsburgh conference website.
