Illumina and the UK Dementia Research Institute hosted a key international opinion leader summit on dementia research. With distinguished speakers and audience of leading scientists in the dementia research field, the event reviewed perspectives on current trends in the field and developed recommendations to accelerate the integration of genomics in dementia research and diagnostic frameworks.

The session titled “Variant interpretation: how to accelerate the adoption of genomic diagnosis in dementia”, focused on the following topics:
