Human Amyloid Imaging

January 14 - 16, 2015
Miami, Florida

HAI 2015

The 9th Human Amyloid Imaging meeting took place in Miami, Florida on January 14-16, 2015. My co-organizers for the meeting were again Bill Klunk and Chet Mathis (University of Pittsburgh) and Bill Jagust (University of California, Berkeley).

At HAI 2015 we had continued 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Our discussions primarily sprang from brief presentations by active investigators who reported unpublished, cutting-edge research in human imaging of amyloid-beta and/or other biomarkers that pertain to Alzheimer's-related disease.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 were 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 2015, we were pleased to welcome two such presentations from Dennis Dickson, MD (Mayo Clinic) and Ann McKee, MD (Boston University). In addition to these, we had continued our lectures on basic methods in amyloid PET.

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