Earlier this month, IOA Director John Q. Trojanowski, MD, PhD, among others, presented a lecture on “Experimental Transmission of Tau Pathology: Implications for Diagnosis and Therapy” at the 2016 Söderberg Prize Seminar at the Swedish Society of Medicine in Stockholm, Sweden.
This Seminar recognized Kaj Blennow, MD, PhD, professor at the University of Goteborg, Sahigrenska University Hospital, and the first Alzheimer’s disease researcher to receive this award. Queen Silvia of Sweden, an avid Alzheimer’s disease research advocate was in attendance to present the award to Dr. Blennow (pictured).
In 2013, the Queen Sylvia Nursing Award was launched in Her Majesty’s (H,M.) name as a way to encourage nursing students to become more interested and involved in research on dementia. “The aim is to support young, driven people with creative ideas that can question convention in how we care for the elderly and dementia patients,” explained H.M. Queen Silvia in an interview with AARP’s The Journal.
