Event description

Description

To make genuine progress in Alzheimer’s research and therapeutics, we must find a way to take “multiple shots on goal,” which will be possible only by obtaining much greater funding than is currently available to support the Alzheimer’s field. The first meeting in Santa Barbara on February 1, 2018, built great momentum toward this objective (click here for more information).

The goal for this second meeting is to generate a clear path forward with actionable road maps for implementation. To achieve this goal, we are creating targeted work streams intended to capture the “lay of the land” of Alzheimer’s scientific research from which we can develop ambitious but realistic objectives and devise new business models, if necessary.
