Human Amyloid Imaging

January 13 - 15, 2016
Miami, Florida

HAI 2016

The 10th Human Amyloid Imaging meeting will take place in Miami, Florida on January 13-15, 2016. My co-organizers for the meeting will once more be Bill Klunk and Chet Mathis (University of Pittsburgh) and Bill Jagust (University of California, Berkeley).

At HAI 2016 we will continue emphasizing ample lively discussion of core controversies such as: what does the presence of brain amyloid mean, how should it be measured, how does it change, and what does it portend?

Our discussions primarily spring from brief presentations by active investigators who report unpublished, cutting-edge research in human imaging of amyloid-beta and/or other biomarkers that pertain to Alzheimer's-related disease. To assemble at HAI only the most recent, important work, abstract submissions will be accepted and peer-reviewed less than two months prior to the meeting.

The 2015 meeting drew more than 300 attendees and showcased 86 posters from research groups from the North America, Europe, South East Asia, and Australia. Meeting Programs from past years are accessible from the links in the right column.

Research reports are complemented at HAI by Keynote presentations that are intended to cross disciplines and provide perspective from neuropathology, neurochemistry, psychology, neurology, molecular imaging, clinical trials and biomarker research. In 2016, we will be pleased to welcome two such presentations from Charles Duyckaerts (Hopital Universitaire La Pitie Salpetriere) and Henrik Zetterberg (University of Gothenburg). In addition to these, we will continue our lectures on basic methods in amyloid PET.

This year we will introduce an extra half-day of sessions starting at noon on the 13th of January. This extra time is allotted for a few presentations on recent advances in tau PET. This technology is rapidly advancing, and while a separate, smaller “pre-meeting” was organized for 2015, the Organizers have decided to lengthen HAI by one-half day to accommodate the surge in interest in this new type of PET biomarker. This will be followed by two full days of talks.  The past three meetings have averaged 250-290 attendees, and we anticipate 300 attendees at the 2016 meeting.   

Until then, browse our site, review our past programs, speakers and posters and consider joining us in 2016!
