Alzheimer’s disease: Making a difference through ten years of partnership and research
World Alzheimer’s Day marks a longstanding partnership between the SCOR Foundation and France's Alzheimer’s Disease Foundation to seek advances in the treatment, early diagnosis and prevention of this debilitating condition.
Ten years of Partnership and Research
Importance of Early Diagnosis
Progress through Collaboration
- A new definition of Alzheimer’s disease, with clear criteria for improved diagnosis, has been established by Professor Bruno Dubois, Professor of Neurology at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris.
- As part of a long-term study of Alzheimer’s sufferers, databanks with clinical, biological and imaging data from three cohorts have been made available to research teams worldwide. This has led to around 20 published articles on biomarkers, early diagnosis, neuroimaging and the varying trajectories of the disease.
- Increasing awareness of significant findings, the SCOR Young European Researcher Prize has been awarded to young Alzheimer’s disease researchers every year since 2014 – click here to watch a video interview with last year’s winner, Erik Portelius of Goteborg University in Sweden.
