RADAR-AD holds its kick-off meeting in London

Wednesday 30 January 2019

The RADAR-AD (Remote Assessment of Disease and Relapse – Alzheimer’s Disease) project held its kick off meeting in London on 30-31 January. The ultimate goal of the project is the development and validation of technology-enabled, quantitative and sensitive measures of functional decline in people with early stage AD. Dianne and Ana attended and took part in the work package discussions related to Public and Patient Involvement, ethics and dissemination and in discussions with researchers involved in other work packages. The European Working Group of People with Dementia will be playing a key role as the Patient Advisory Group within this project. They will inform the research partners about their perspectives and experience throughout the whole project and this will guide the development of appropriate materials and procedures.  The EWGPWD will commence their role at the next EWGPWD meeting in Luxembourg in March where they will be commenting on the research protocol and contributing towards the development of focus group discussions at national level. AE will be working closely with researchers from King’s College London, the University of Oxford, Lygature and Takeda Development Centre Europe Ltd.

The RADAR-AD project has received support from the Innovative Medicines Initiative Joint Undertaking under grant agreement n° 806999.
