About ISTAART

In 2008, the Alzheimer’s Association opened a new door to support the dementia research community by creating the International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART).

Researchers and clinicians

Today's researchers join ISTAART to strengthen their scientific knowledge and network with their peers. Members enjoy exclusive benefits, participate in networking events and collaborate on papers and projects with fellow peers through participation in a Professional Interest Area (PIA).

Students and new investigators

The Association recognizes that the future of Alzheimer's research relies on students and those starting their careers in the field. ISTAART provides opportunities for networking, financial support opportunities to attend the Alzheimer's Association International Conference and mentorship.

Advisory Council

The ISTAART Advisory Council is a select group of Alzheimer's and dementia experts representing a variety of research disciplines.
