Lectures and seminars Sex-differences in cognitive aging—which are the key mechanisms?
This 3rd workshop aims to provide an overview of the potential mechanisms underlying sex-differences in dementia, focusing on the genetic and biological mechanisms (immune response/inflammation, sex hormones and chromosome, and vascular). The workshop is divided in two parts.
In PART 1, three international speakers will summarize past and present of sex-hormones, genetic and immune response, and vascular mechanisms underlying sex-differences in dementia. In PART 2, the three speakers plus expertise-matched speakers from KI will discuss how future research in sex-related biological mechanisms should move forward and potential collaborations.
Dates and time: 7th Mach 2023; From 15:15 to 17:15 ECT
Place: virtual on Zoom (supported by the Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and treatment (ISTAART)'s Professional Intererest Area Sex and Gender Differences in Alzheimer's Disease)
