Research education and courses at the Division of Neurogeriatrics

Approximately 20 PhD students are currently registered at the Division of Neurogeriatrics. In addition, we provide a number of doctoral courses and an advanced course for in dementia diseases for Chinese clinicians and scientists. We are also coordinating the Clinical Research School in Molecular Medicine and the European Training Network SyDAD. Furthermore, our researchers are deeply involved in the Board of Doctoral Education, the Doctoral supervisor training and the Introduction course for doctoral education.

Doctoral courses given at the division:

Neurodegenerative Disorders I - Genes, mechanisms and clinical aspects #5572

The course goal is to offer a broad insight concerning clinical symtomatology, diagnosis and treatment strategies in addition to an understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disorders.

Course leaders: Helena Karlström ,Elisabet Åkesson & Caroline Graff 

Neurodegenerative disorders II - cellular and molecular mechanisms #2630.

The course is a continuation of course #2629 with a purpose to provide a deeper understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, focusing on molecular mechanisms and techniques used for studying these, as well as treatment strategies.

Course leaders: Sophia Schedin-Weiss, Per Nilsson and Lars Tjernberg

Alzheimer’s disease: Clinical Features and Pathogenic Mechanisms, #1584.

This course provides up-to-date knowledge of different aspects of Alzheimer's disease (AD) from clinical symptoms and diagnosis to molecular mechanisms and future therapeutics.

The course will be given next time in 21 March- 1 April 2022

Course leaders: Per Nilsson & Anna Matton

Neurogenetics #2600

The purpose of the course is to introduce the concepts and methodology applied in human genetic studies in general with examples from human diseases in the nervous system and to use this knowledge to prepare and present oral presentations as well as ask and answer questions.

Course leader: Caroline Graff

Advanced course in dementia diseases for Chinese clinicians and scientists

Center for Alzheimer Research is organizing an advanced course in dementia diseases for Chinese clinicians and scientists, in collaboration with the China International Exchange and Promotive Association for Medical and Health Care (CPAM). The course involves Karolinska Institutet and the Geriatric clinic at the Karolinska University Hospital, and also other geriatric clinics in Stockholm.

Clinical Research School in Molecular Medicine

The Clinical Research School in Molecular Medicine is a postgraduate program maintained through the joint support from Karolinska Institutet and Region Stockholm. The aim is to provide research-interested clinicians with an adequate postgraduate training, designed to meet the needs of increased and improved translational research. Only clinicians employed by Region Stockholm is eligible for the Research School.

Synaptic Dysfunction in Alzheimer Disease (SyDAD)

SyDAD is a European Training Network sponsored by Horizon2020, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (GA676144), which is training 15 Early Stage Researchers (PhD students) and performs a collaborative research program to reveal the mechanisms behind synaptic dysfunction in Alzheimer Disease (AD).
