Summer School: Alzheimer’s Disease Research Methodology From Cell to Populations

External Event - 12th to 16th Jun 2017

The University of Edinburgh, Centre for Dementia Prevention is hosting a summer school from 12th-16th June 2017.

A unique opportunity for a cross-disciplinary tour of methodology in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease Research.

The CDP Summer School is a multidisciplinary 5-day course in research methods on three CDP research sites. The school is designed principally for post-graduate students with an interest in pursuing research in Alzheimer’s Disease, but also open to final year students and medical students undertaking research projects. Admission will be restricted to 20 participants to maximise student/teacher interchange. The course will provide an overview of research design and methodology from cellular and animal research through to clinical and general population studies. The principal goals are:

  • To extend understanding of research methods beyond the student’s current discipline to appreciate the methods, strengths and weaknesses of other approaches to the disorder
  • To develop critical appraisal of research design
  • To encourage cross-disciplinary research
  • To provide an opportunity for researchers in the field to connect with colleagues in other faculties 

Registration = £250pp. Here you will also find a programme for the events across all 5 days.
