To tackle the public health crisis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), we must work together. The Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease (CCAD) partners with over 50 universities across the United States to help ensure early-career scientists are collaborating, advancing their research and successfully pursuing funding opportunities for their innovative ideas.
CCAD has had over 120 scientists have been invited attend with over twenty receiving financial awards who have gone on to receive significant NIH funding. CCAD alumni have also collaborated after the conference to secure additional funding together.
CCAD and its parent company, New Vision Research, hopes cross-pollination among scientists from different educational institutions and organizations helps lead to improvements in diagnosis and treatment, and ultimately a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
