Multi-Partner Consortium
to Expand Dementia Research
in Latin America

To establish genetic contributions
to AD and FTD in diverse LAC cohorts

To elucidate the impact of SES
on clinical, cognitive, and brain
imaging signatures in LAC and the US

To determine whether genetic risk
and SES yield better discrimination
between LAC and US patients
as compared with other cognitive, neuroimaging, and clinical variables

This project fosters a Consortium with support from multiple partners whose goal is to expand dementia research in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The Consortium aims to combine genomic, neuroimaging and behavioral (clinical, cognitive, socioeconomic) data to improve dementia characterization and identify novel inroads to treat neurodegeneration in diverse populations. This 5-year project constitutes an unprecedented opportunity to foster regional synergy and multidisciplinary research to promote harmonization of global strategies to treat and, ultimately, prevent dementia in diverse and underserved populations around the world.  We will develop an innovative, harmonized, and cross-regional approach on two of their most prevalent neurodegenerative disorders: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
