The AD/PD™ Conference is where the brightest minds gather to explore the latest research, clinical trials, and treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. The event has grown to be one of the leading events in the field of neurodegenerative disorders and was held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 5-9 March 2024.

Several EU-FINGERS partners had the opportunity to travel to Lisbon and took part in inspiring discussions. The participation of the EU-FINGERS members showcased their wishes continuing to make significant strides towards understanding the complexities of Alzheimer’s disease and developing effective preventive strategies.

In a session dedicated to prediction and prevention of cognitive decline, our project coordinator Miia Kivipelto presented new data from FINGER-based trials related to efficacy, responders, adherence and biomarkers. An up-to-date status of the MET-FINGER and WW-FINGERS network was also presented.

Miia Kivipelto was invited as a panelist in the symposium hosted by Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative “How several key efforts are making their data and samples accessible to the broader research community”, moderated by Phyllis Ferrell.

“Dementia is a global challenge, and we need global solutions. Our answer to #dementia prevention is WW-FINGERS.”

“We have the mindset of data sharing when we started. But, not just data: experiences and learnings too on how to make data as useful and impactful as possible.”
