Alzheimer’s Challenge 2012 seeks simple tools to detect and manage dementia
Thursday 26 January 2012
Alzheimer's Challenge 2012 is a competition to solicit creative ideas from people both within Alzheimer's research and outside the field about how to detect the disease at its earliest stages and track its progression over time.
The Challenge, which will award cash prizes, seeks the development of simple, cost-effective, consistent tools that could be easily used to assess memory, mood, thinking and activity level over time to help improve diagnosis and monitoring of people with Alzheimer’s disease. Submissions can be made at www.alzheimerschallenge2012.com
This competition is co-sponsored by Geoffrey Beene Gives Back Alzheimer's Initiative, the Alzheimer's Immunotherapy Program of Janssen Alzheimer Immunotherapy and Pfizer Inc.
