Drug Addiction and Incarceration: A Public Luncheon Briefing

Washington, DC
Thursday, July 09, 2015
An overwhelming majority of felony incarcerations involve substance abuse, costing states and the federal government tens of billions of dollars.  What is the correlation between drug addiction and crime, what are leading scientists working on to address this problem, and are there policy solutions to remediate this issue? Come join the discussion and listen to two leading experts in the field discuss the nexus of drug addiction and incarceration. This event is hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) through the support of the Dana Foundation, and in conjunction with Rep. Chaka Fattah. For questions, please contact Sara Spizzirri at 202-326-6789 or sspizzir@aaas.org.

Alzheimer's Disease and Tau: Pathogenic Mechanisms and Therapeutic Approaches

The New York Academy of Sciences
Friday, September 18, 2015
The Microtubule Associated Protein tau (MAPT or tau) is closely linked to Alzheimer's disease (AD), the Fronto-Temporal Dementias (FTDs) and several other neurodegenerative diseases. While it has long been recognized that tau aggregates to form neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), a hallmark pathological lesion in AD and other disorders, emerging evidence demonstrates that tau has a mechanistically complex role in neurodegeneration. Speakers at this symposium will address novel tau-centered mechanisms of neurodegeneration and new therapeutic approaches for many devastating neurological disorders.
