About

Dementia is arguably the greatest single global healthcare challenge, affecting more than 47 million people worldwide at an estimated annual cost to the global economy of over US $604 billion. The Dementia Discovery Fund (“DDF”) is a highly innovative new fund backed by the UK Government, Alzheimer’s Research UK and seven of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies.

 

The DDF is funding the discovery and development of new disease-modifying treatments for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia with the intent to improve dramatically the quality of life for the growing number of dementia sufferers and their families while also generating a financial return.

About the Meet with… Series:
The purpose of the Meet with Series events sponsored by JLABS is to help start-up entrepreneurs, as well as the academic community, connect with potential partners, such as big pharma or other investment corporations, through one-on-one meetings. It is also a chance for the featured corporation to outline their specific business development goals and clarify what types of products or research they are interested in and how best to approach them to get the partnering process started.

    FIVE POINTS
    Five Points lecture series bring leading scientists from around the world for an in-depth discussion of their work with students, researchers and clinicians from the New York Genome Center, its member institutions, and others in the medical/scientific community. While Five Points lectures are free and open to the general public, these lectures are most beneficial to scientists, clinicians and researchers who wish to accelerate their research through the use of DNA sequencing technology and bioinformatics. Five Points lectures often frame five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of Q&A, and 30 minutes of networking over hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These afternoon events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 4 pm.

They are intended to showcase and explain high science to the non-scientific community. Speakers present the latest research findings and explain its implication for helping improve clinical care for a wide array of serious diseases. The lecture is followed by a lively question-and-answer session and a post-event reception of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These popular free public events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 6:30 pm. The Evening Talks Series is sponsored by The New York Community Trust – Pyewacket Fund.
