PredictND management and project team meeting held in Copenhagen

Monday 06 March 2017

On 6 and 7 March, in Copenhagen, Denmark management and project team meetings for the PredictND project were held, mainly focusing on the upcoming interim review in Brussels (see article dated 14 March).

Partners reported very promising preliminary findings regarding the efficacy of the low-cost approach to detection.

The partners have an impressive list of ongoing and future publications. Neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) are typically diagnosed with a consensus of several experts that have examined the patient and the collected data. The diagnosis will be based on the current guidelines and expertise of the participating specialists. Objective exploitation of data collected from previous patients with similar symptoms is hard. Knowledge of these patients, their tests and outcome should be collected and documented in an intuitive and easy to use form. The first technical objective is to develop a decision support software tool to be used in clinical workflows for differential diagnostics of NDs.

Alzheimer Europe Executive Director Jean Georges and Director for Projects Dianne Gove attended these meetings.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 611005.
