The Neurodegeneration Study Group is an investigator-initiated group that brings together brain health scientists who work on different aspects of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, dementia, and other neurodegenerative diseases. The goal of this group is to facilitate novel collaborations among scientists with overlapping interests, and to fully realize funding opportunities for neurodegeneration research.

The Neurodegeneration Study Group will meet monthly beginning in April, 2019. The initial meeting was an informal opportunity for PIs, fellows, and students who work on neurodegenerative diseases to meet and interact.  Subsequent meetings will have one or two components, each of which can last from 10 - 40 minutes.
