UCSD Shiley-Marcos ADRC Youtube Channel

  • Virtual Brain Blast Series
    • The UC San Diego Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center Brain Blast Series is a virtual educational series for the community to access from the convenience of their homes. Presenters are all Shiley-Marcos ADRC colleagues with expertise in brain aging research that focuses on prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Each of the experts featured in the series studies a unique aspect of brain aging and has developed a brief overview of their current research to highlight the state-of-the-art science ongoing at UCSD. We hope you will take advantage of this free resource to learn more about advances in brain aging, the importance of research, and the multitude of opportunities to get involved and participate in research studies.
