Barry Greenberg has been involved in Alzheimer’s disease research and drug discoverysince 1985.

At UHN, he is currently co-directing the Toronto Dementia Research Alliance as Director of Strategy, a consortium involving academic research and the five memory clinics at hospitals affiliated with the University of Toronto to create a citywide dementia research center.  He possesses a significant background in most aspects of the drug discovery process in neurological disease, with externally recognized expertise ranging from target identification and validation through preclinical and clinical development including issues of biomarker-based diagnosis and proof of concept. 

Dr Greenberg has a strong international network in the Alzheimer field including industry, academia, government and the voluntary sector, plus previous involvement in multi-sector consortia.

This promises to be a very interesting conversation. 

Christopher Wynn will share with us the film he made documenting his journey with his Dad’s and his dementia called "Forgetful, Not Forgotten"as well as discussing the importance of capturing and sharing stories and how family dynamics and secondary caregivers come into play.  We will also find out about his upcoming project.
