The 7th Annual Penn Memory Center Thank You Breakfast drew a full house to the Inn at Penn’s Woodlands Ballroom on Saturday, October 26, 2013. The annual invitation-only breakfast is held each year to thank research participants for their contribution to Penn’s Alzheimer’s disease research.
Over 200 research participants, their family members, guests and PMC staff gathered to enjoy a full breakfast buffet before hearing presentations on the latest updates in Alzheimer’s disease and the results of Alzheimer’s disease research done at the Penn Memory Center.
John Trojanowski, MD, PhD, Director of Penn’s Alzheimer’s Disease Core Center; Steven E. Arnold, MD, Director of the Penn Memory Center; Jason Karlawish, MD, Associate Director of the Penn Memory Center; and Felicia Greenfield, Associate Director for Clinical and Research Operations at the Penn Memory Center, presented the latest results from their research studies as well as updates on Penn Memory Center programs and upcoming research opportunities.
The presentations concluded with an open question and answer session. Guests’ questions ranged from the current and future state of Alzheimer’s disease research to the effects of antihistamines on memory.
