Improving Preclinical Translation of Alzheimers Disease Research

We invite you to join us for an immersion workshop focusing on the improvement of preclinical translation in Alzheimer’s Disease research. This workshop will leverage the expertise and facilities of the Indiana University (IU)/JAX Model Organism Development for Evaluation of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (MODEL-AD) Precision Medicine consortium.  We aim to address training gaps in preclinical drug screening by providing you with the skills and knowledge required for rigorous design, execution, analysis, and reporting of pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamics, and preclinical efficacy experiments, particularly in the mouse. Through this workshop, you will experience a significant amount of hands-on, practical laboratory training in in vivo drug screening.  We also strive to support you in your research project and career advancement through networking with experts and peers to promote collaborative research.

This course is for graduate students, postdocs, research scientists and junior faculty conducting or that will be conducting preclinical research in Alzheimer's Disease or related diseases. Scholarships are available for U.S. citizens.

 

This course is made possible by funding from the National Institute on Aging.
