Alzheimer’s Disease Research Network of WA State

The Alzheimer’s Disease Research Network of Washington State

The Alzheimer’s Disease Research Network of Washington State, an UW MBWC/ADRC-led project of the WA State Dementia Action Collaborative,  is a quarterly teleconference to connect researchers in WA under the broad Alzheimer's and related dementia scope, such as basic science, animal models, clinical trials, translational studies. The project offers opportunities to disseminate the latest research findings, assist with recruitment efforts (via clinician-to-researcher connections), and foster collaboration across researchers, laboratories, and facilities. The group is developing a network for researchers in WA whose studies focus on Alzheimer’s disease and related neurocognitive disorders. The goal is to create an up-to-date network where both researchers and clinicians can connect and collaborate.
