CFR Researchers Present at FTD2010 Meeting in Indianapolis

The 7th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias was held October 6-8, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Clinicians and researchers from around the world met to present and discuss their FTLD-related research. A parallel session for caregivers offered a unique opportunity for professional and non-professional caregivers to meet and hear presentations on genetic causes of FTLD and related research.

Members of several CFR-funded labs attended the conference and gave oral presentations or presented posters describing their research results. CFR Investigator Dr. Aimee Kao commented, "The meeting was a terrific opportunity to meet and discuss my findings and other recent advances with many prominent scientists in the field."

The next international conference will be held in Manchester, United Kingdom in 2012.
