Online Seminars

The Center for Alzheimer's and Neurodegenerative Diseases is hosting a series of online seminars.

If you would like to attend any of these sessions, please contact the center for the meeting link.

These seminars are held via Microsoft Teams; you must use a UT Southwestern campus computer or VPN to attend.

Recorded Seminars

Recordings are viewable via Microsoft Stream. A UT Southwestern campus computer or VPN is required unless otherwise indicated.
