Adult Changes in Thought Study

ACT Research Symposium

ACT Research Symposium and Program Meetings to be held in November 2022

Additional details will be posted here soon! 

Since 2013, we have held an annual symposium to showcase new resources from the Adult Changes in Thought (ACT) Study, highlight innovative research findings, share new grant ideas, and promote cross-disciplinary collaborations. The symposium enables us to:

  • Promote scientific use and understanding of ACT data
  • Encourage collaborations across scientific disciplines, institutions, and studies
  • Provide opportunities for feedback on ongoing and planned work such as analyses-in-progress or new grant ideas, particularly for early-career investigators

The 2022 ACT Symposium will address critical topics in aging and dementia research, including resilience, brain imaging, dementia subtypes, molecular phenotypes, and traumatic brain injury, among other areas.

The ACT Symposium helps increase use of the ACT living laboratory — a dynamic and growing repository of multiple data sources. The Symposium also provides a creative, welcoming space for top investigators to exchange innovative research ideas and accelerate Alzheimer’s disease and brain aging research.
