News & Events

The Layton Aging and Alzheimer's Disease Center believes that both patients and caregivers are empowered by having the best quality and most current information about their disease available to them.

In our clinic, there is a display area that has informational material available to the public. In this area of our website, we provide information about upcoming events that are open to the public and offer valuable information for people, families and caregivers living with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.

Upcoming Events


AD Investigator Meeting

Thursday, April 17th from 2:00-3:00pm
Mark Hatfield Research Center, 13th Floor, Room 13D40aa


“Orientation to Layton Center and ORCATECH: an overview for collaborators”

 

Tracy Zitzelberger, MPH
Administrative Director and Research Associate
Oregon Center for Aging & Technology
Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center
Oregon Health & Science University


Are you interested in data or specimens from longitudinal aging research? Writing a grant application and in need of pilot data?  The OHSU Layton Aging & Alzheimer's Disease Center and Oregon Center for Aging and Technology (ORCATECH) work closely to make the data and specimens that comprehensively characterize longitudinal cohorts of research volunteers available to the wider research community.  This presentation will orient interested investigators to the data and specimens available for collaborative use, including clinical data (e.g., neuropsychologic, neurologic), activity data (e.g., in-home continuous assessment data, computer use, weekly health form surveys, social health surveys), recruitment data (e.g., several ongoing longitudinal projects), biomarker (e.g., plasma, CSF), and genetic and pathology specimens and data.  This overview is an opportunity to become more familiar with the resources these research centers have to offer.

There are three ways to participate:
* In person: Space is limited.  You’ll be contacted if there is no more room.
* Web conference: An invitation to the web conference will be sent to your email in advance of the meeting.
* View recording: A link to the recorded presentation will be sent to your email after the meeting.
If you would like to take part, please complete this survey.  RSVP is encouraged, but not required.
