The 3rd Symposium on Dementia Prevention will be held at the Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer (IDAC) on October 20th (Friday), from 1:00 PM – 4:10 PM at the Smart-Aging International Conference Room (Center for Smart-Aging Research, 1st Floor).

 

In collaboration with researchers from all over the world, we aim to find early ways to prevent dementia across various academic fields from basic life sciences, humanities to social sciences; coming all together to contribute to the development of preventive medicine, intervention and assistance technology (including medical system and social system reforms) through research. In this symposium, young researchers will present ground-breaking research that aim towards the goal of realizing “Smart-Aging” and the establishment of primary dementia prevention.

“Please join us for our 3rd symposium to find innovative ways to develop ground-breaking discoveries to prevent dementia at an early stage through local and global collaborations.”
