The Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center hosted the first meeting of the Research Participant Panel of the European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia Consortium (EPAD) in Barcelona. The panel is composed of 8 members who will represent and ensure the interests of the Spanish participants in the project.
Their mission is to suggest ideas in order to improve their experience in the study, to discuss topics of their interest, to review the information provided to the participants, and to act as an independent board between participants and the international scientific board of the study.
The next meeting will take place on spring of 2018, and will be focused on the topics that they will present at the EPAD General Assembly.
With more than 110 cognitively healthy participants, the BBRC is leading the recruitment of the EPAD project, which has now recruited over 400 participants within 10 European Trial Delivery Centres.
