Silver Santé researchers to present at World’s largest Alzheimer’s conference

Silver Santé student researchers from the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research –  INSERM team U1237 in Caen directed by Gael Chetelat – are preparing to present their work at this year’s prestigious Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC).

The conference, which will take place as a hybrid event with sessions being held virtually and in- person in San Diego, is the largest and most influential international meeting dedicated to advancing dementia science.  Held annually, the conference brings together the World’s leading basic scientists, clinicians, and the care research community to share the latest research discoveries that lead to methods of prevention, treatment, and improvements in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

PhD student Francesca Felisatti of the University of Caen will present her work entitled “Interaction between APOE4 and lifestyle on neuroimaging biomarkers and cognition in cognitively unimpaired older adults” supervised by Julie Gonneaud (Inserm U1237).

Cassandre Palix, also a PhD student from the University of Caen supervised by Géraldine Poisnel (Inserm U1237), will discuss findings from recent studies into allostatic load (the cumulative burden of chronic stress and life events) and its association with emotional and behavioural responses in the brain, in cognitively unimpaired older adults.

The AAIC conference will take place between 31st July and 4th August 2022.  For further information and to register visit:
