50 million people worldwide are now suffering from dementia; however, the exact causes remain elusive. Vascular Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID) due to cerebrovascular diseases and pathologies represents 20~40% of the dementia cases, and largely overlaps with AD in terms of pathologies and pathogenic factors. Learn the cutting edge research in Vascular Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID),discover the research trends.

What you’ll learn:

  • New insight into the genetic causes of VCID and AD
  • A better understanding the etiology and pathogenesis of AD and VICD, especially decoding the common genetic causes may help us define the etiology in a subset of cases
  • More effective therapeutics for AD and VCID in the near future
