Updates on Research and Clinical Networking in Latin America
Join us on November 15 for a virtual meeting to hear research updates from investigators at the Latin American Brain Health Institute (BrainLat) and the Multi-Partner Consortium to Expand Dementia Research in Latin America (ReDLat). The agenda will include talks focused on values and best practices in international research collaborations and updates from the Brain Bank of the Brazilian Aging Brain Study Group. This meeting will serve as an opportunity to share ideas for future research and networking and explore potential collaborations.
This virtual meeting is hosted by BrainLat and the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) and made possible by support from ReDLat funders, including the National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer’s Association, Rainwater Charitable Foundation, and Alector.
