PNGC members had a great experience at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) this year. AAIC took place in Los Angeles from July 12-17. We presented four posters during the conference and the National Institute on Aging Genetics of Alzheimer’s Disease Data Storage Site (NIAGADS) exhibited for the first time. In addition, Dr. Adam Naj presented a talk titled “Genome-Wide Meta-Analysis of Late-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease Using Rare Variant Imputation in 64,859 Subjects Identifies Risk Loci with Roles in Innate Immunity and Cardiovascular Traits: The International Genomics of Alzheimer’s Project (IGAP)”.
Faculty and staff from PNGC were able to connect with a number of collaborators and met researchers that are interested in the data we host and share. Having a booth at the conference was a great opportunity to promote NIAGADS, GCAD, and the Genomics Database to the research community! Some photo highlights from the conference are below.
