14th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias (ISFTD2024)

Frontotemporal dementia is the second most common cause of early onset dementia and a challenging differential diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease whatever the age. Behavioral changes, language and motor disorders are the main symptoms, which may have a devastating impact on families, but an underestimated number manifest as memory disorders long indistinguishable from Alzheimer’s disease. Several pathological subtypes underlie the disease, and genetics plays an important role, which contributes to the devastating impact of the disease on the families, but opens up therapeutic perspectives. Considerable progress has been made over the last 20 years in understanding the molecular basis of FTD and in developing therapeutic approaches. After Sydney, Munich, Vancouver and Lille, this biennial congress of the international Society of FTD will be held in the Netherlands.

The ISFTD2024 is organized by Alzheimer Center Amsterdam. They have a great track record on patient care and scientific research and they are ready to prepare a magnificent podium for researchers and clinicians to disseminate their knowledge and experience. This conference is directed to neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, neuropsychologists with an interest in FTD and/or dementia. FTD caregivers are also encouraged to attend during the caregivers programme. Further it hopes to attract basic scientists in the dementia and FTD field.

The conference provides an outstanding and unparalleled forum for networking and socialization and offers a host of exhibits by industry and non-profit partners who support our work studying and treating Frontotemporal Dementias.

We are looking forward to your participation in ISFTD2024!
