ADRC Talks & Seminars Included on this Calendar:

* Please email gwanucha@uw.edu with any talks or events you would like listed on this calendar.

  • Clinicopathologic Correlation Conference. A longstanding monthly conference sponsored by the UW Department of Pathology that reviews cases of special clinical and neuropathological interest. It is well attended by most UW and VA clinicians who treat or evaluate cases associated with the UW ADRC. Each quarter, the CPC is replaced by the ADRC Quarterly Scientific meeting, in which junior investigators present their progress made on ADRC-funded research projects.

  • Research in Progress Seminar. This monthly seminar meets jointly with the UW Neuropathology Division where trainees present their ongoing research. In addition to comments raised during their seminars, trainees receive formal feedback from their primary mentors and from designated ADRC investigators.

  • Towards Precision Medicine seminar series. A monthly UW ADRC-supported meeting with a theme of “Toward Precision Medicine for AD” intended to provide a forum for ADRC and related investigators to discuss research projects that align with the Center’s ongoing focus on biological heterogeneity of AD and its implications for precision medicine.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease Training Program (ADTP) journal clubs for ADTP fellows

  • UW ADRC Indigenous Aging Native AD Research Education. Research talks and presentations, for researchers, students, and clinicians interested in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias in American Indians and Alaskan Natives.

For Undergraduates

Grey Matters Journal— An undergraduate neuroscience journal at the University of Washington. Join the staff members who publish a quarterly journal that is written, edited, illustrated, and produced entirely by undergraduate students. Aside from the journal, Grey Matters also hosts events such as our annual Evening with Neuroscience, an event dedicated to helping the public learn more about neuroscience from some of the most accomplished individuals in the field.

 

“Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a way of taking MRI images that is sensitive to the way water diffuses in the brain. If there is any sort of damage to the white matter of the brain, we see increased or disordered diffusion. Additionally, water diffuses quickly along the white matter pathways of the brain, so DTI can allow us to see the pathways that connect different parts of the brain.” -Dan Peterson, UW Integrated Brain Imaging Center.
