Webinar: Polygenic Risk Score analysis for Alzheimer's disease risk

The utility of Polygenic Risk Scores (PRS) is gaining researchers' attention for identifying individual genetic risk and disease risk prediction in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) at both the early and pre symptomatic stages of the disease. This can help in patient stratification for clinical trial research to develop targeted treatments for AD.
