Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center Events

NYU Langone’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center hosts events and seminars year-round for the public, as well as research and professional development events for clinicians, researchers, and trainees.

Lecture Series

We host lunchtime lectures for our Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center study participants, which are presented virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These gatherings are a great opportunity to discuss frequently asked questions and common topics of interest for study participants in a comfortable, informal setting with our clinicians. View more on our YouTube channel.

We also host various lectures, as well as a Learn at Home series to help educate patients and family members online.

Center for Cognitive Neurology Research Day
