International Collaboration to Foster Innovation in Alzheimer’s Research

IMG_2870Several Biological Sciences School faculty members joined Dean Frank M. LaFerla and their distinguished colleagues at Tel-Aviv University for the 24th Tel-Aviv University Alzheimer’s Disease Conference in Israel.  The conference represents a growing partnership between the two universities, as both seek to increase the success of their faculty by providing new opportunities to collaborate with researchers across the globe. The conference covered a range of topics, from basic Alzheimer’s research to clinical studies and diagnostics, and gave researchers from both universities the opportunity to share their latest discoveries and breakthroughs.  A number of scientist from Tel-Aviv University have already been working with research tools developed at the Biological Sciences School, and it was the goal of the conference host that the event would stimulate additional innovation and bring both universities closer to discoveries that will bring an end to Alzheimer’s.
