Welcome to 6th Kuopio Alzheimer Symposium
DEAR FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most important health challenges worldwide. This year’s Kuopio Alzheimer Symposium will once again bring together the current leaders involved in clinical trials and provide a forum for new ideas for future research and subsequently for treatment and prevention options. The First Kuopio Alzheimer Symposium was held in January of 1999 in freezing temperatures. This time we decided to fulfill the wish of many of you to organize the meeting in the summer to provide you also an opportunity to experience the Finnish summer and the midnight sun.
We are proud to present our exciting final program which will focus on new results concerning early diagnosis; new advances in brain imaging; biomarkers for AD; search for drug targets; prevention; and treatment and care.
I warmly welcome all to enjoy this inspirational scientific event in June 2012. Looking forward to seeing you in Kuopio!
Hilkka Soininen, MD, Ph.D.
