JPND will be represented at the 27th Alzheimer’s Disease International Conference Exhibition on Thursday and Friday, March 8th-9th, stand S13.

The conference is being held in London from 7 to 10 March 2012.  Hosted by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) and the Alzheimer’s Society, the conference is conceived as ‘three conferences in one’, under the theme Science, Fact, Fiction.

The conference will be valuable for professionals, scientists, researchers, policy makers, people living with dementia, informal and professional carers.


The EU Joint Programme on Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has been established by 23 European countries to address the growing societal challenge presented by age-related neurodegeneration. This initiative spans the biomedical, healthcare and social science agendas, and seeks to improve the scientific understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, provide new approaches for their prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and ensure effective provision of health and social care and support, so that individuals can receive optimum care at all stages of their illness.
