The international Kuopio Alzheimer Symposium was organized by the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio, Finland on June 6–8, 2018 for the 8th time. Approximately 300 researchers in the fields of neuroscience and neurology from 12 different countries around the world gathered to Kuopio to hear and discuss about the latest insights into the mechanisms and comorbidities and novel approaches for diagnosis, prediction, prevention and therapies of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. The 2-day international program on June 7–8 included a keynote session, five oral scientific sessions and a poster session. The international symposium was preceded by a ‘Memory Day’ on June 6, held in Finnish and targeted to Finnish healthcare professionals, including doctors, psychologists and nurses, who work daily with patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.
