Intro Text


Diane Bovenkamp: So this is like a boot camp. It's a BrightFocus Alzheimer's Disease Fast Track, to allow people to become immersed in not only the information, but also connect with some of their colleagues and with people leaders in the field.

Dr. Frank LaFerla: I think it's perhaps one of the most innovative programs that any foundation does. We invite the most distinguished, accomplished researchers throughout the world. And they spent three days in close proximity with the most junior investigators in the field. It doesn't happen at any other venue that I'm aware of.

Dr. Jennifer Gatchel: You know, foundations like BrightFocus, really provide that opportunity, kind of recognize that that is that period of the people really need that bridge, and they provide that. So that's the difference.

Dr. Arjun Masurkar: And so this conference focuses me on what are the relevant topics today, what are what are the leaders in the field really excited about today, where is this field going right now?

Dr. Isabella Aubert: That's critical, because this is the next generation that will be the scientists of the future.

Dr. Harry Steinbusch: But if you want to have new scientists, you have to have what I would call it ‘seed money.’ If you're investing in your people you can benefit later.

Dr. Hei-Man Chow: We need research to improve society and we need grounds to pay on the research with our brands can be nothing funding is very important.

Diane: Part of this boot camp, this Alzheimer’s Fast Track is teaching them how to think of an idea put it together in a scientific way.

Dr. Iman Aganj: They gave a topic to each group. And each group starts brainstorming and coming up with an idea

Diane: In the format of our grant proposal they're going to present it, we're going to give them 15 minutes to present their idea, they hatch together over the course of this whole meeting.
