Diagnosis and biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease: current scenario and future perspectives

This webinar will explore the intricate landscape of Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis and biomarkers, including, an examination of qualitative and quantitative diagnosis methods, an exploration of the challenges obstructing early detection, and a discussion of the imperative for non-invasive and cost-effective biomarkers.

Moreover, it will delve into the disparities in blood-based Amyloid and Tau biomarkers among different ethnic groups.

By the end of this session, participants will have gained valuable insights into the current state and future directions of Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis and biomarker research.
