Seminar for scientific journalists

Lest we forget: why Alzheimer’s research is such a challenge

On 13 April 2016, the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, the Swiss Clinical Trial Organisation and Interpharma organised a joint seminar on Alzheimer’s research at Restaurant Metropol in Zurich. The seminar offered an overview of where we stand at present with regard to the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s, as well as current research.
The event was aimed primarily at science journalists and also at actors from the science environment.
