Welcome to the AD/PD™ 2021 Hybrid Conference

The 15th​ International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases and related neurological disorders, AD/PD™ 2021, will build on the well-earned reputation of the groundbreaking series of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases Conferences, which attract international medical and scientific professionals worldwide.​​

AD/PD™ 2021 will be held as a hybrid conference, providing participants with the opportunity to attend onsite in Barcelona, or join us online and participate remotely. The virtual platform will become available for all attendees at the start of the conference, and will remain live for 3 months afterward. More information will be available soon.

Renowned for the Program

The AD/PD™ conference offers a high quality scientific
program covering the most recent research, clinical trials,
developments, and treatments in Alzheimer’s and
Parkinson’s, with emphasis on overlaps and congruent
results among AD. This provides participants with
unparalleled and powerful insights into distinct
neurodegenerative diseases in one setting to examine
their similarities and differences.

Top Speakers in the Field

Science and education are the main forces behind AD/PD™
conferences and participants agree that the quality of the
content and the educational value are what set it apart from
other events in the field. In the 2019 CME Participant
evaluation form 96% state that the event contributed to
their professional development, while almost 97% agree
that the quality of the speakers was excellent.

AD/PD™ in Numbers

A unique conference that provides a world class
platform for clinical investigators and basic scientists
to present, discuss and trade expertise on a broad range
of themes and topics, AD/PD™ has gone from strength to
strength attracting over 3,800 participants from 75
countries and over 2,200 abstracts.

``Another AD/PD has come and gone! I am motivated by new ideas and new technologies on the cutting edge toward advancing our understanding of these diseases. I was struck by the depth of insight, especially in the plenary talks, and the collaborative atmosphere. I am now planning projects with two researchers in Europe I probably would not have engaged were it not for this conference.``

Irena Rektorova

``AD/PD covers at least 2 gaps that are not covered by other conferences - it combines otherwise rather separate fields of yet the most prevalent neurodegenerative brain diseases that have a lot in common, and it covers both preclinical and clinical topics.``
