Our theme this year is Disrupting Neurodegenerative Diseases. This day-long event showcases world class emerging research and technology solutions that will disrupt the way individuals, clinicians, providers, and society address the impact of diverse neurodegenerative diseases. Through keynote presentations, panel discussions by academic and industry leaders, and poster sessions and exhibits, the summit will highlight the research, innovation and educational mission of the University of California and the diverse and signifi cant impacts the University has on improving the well-being of older adults. We expect this summit will provide an opportunity for all attendees to learn more about innovative research, interventions, and technology solutions that are emerging to address neurodegenerative diseases. We also believe that by exposing all who attend to the latest developments in the fi eld, the summit ultimately will help foster the cross-pollination of interdisciplinary ideas and help forge new collaborations among leaders in industry, government, academia, and providers, and a closer working relationship with families and patients. The summit is hosted by a group of UC Berkeley’s premier research and education programs: the Berkeley Brain Initiative, the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society and the Banatao Institute (CITRIS), OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Fung Fellowship for Wellness and Technology Innovations, the Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA), and the Center for Research and Education in Aging (CREA).
