Welcome to the seventh issue of the ROADMAP newsletter!

This seventh newsletter marks the initiation towards the end of ROADMAP Phase 1, which will conclude at the end of October.

We had a great journey throughout the last two years. This project has probably been the most detailed and comprehensive evaluation of real-world evidence in Alzheimer's disease that has ever been conducted. Our teams have made great progress and findings of this fantastic work are now in the publication pipeline.

This newsletter includes an update on the progress of our work streams and links up some of the activities since the previous issue. Furthermore, our Consortium looks forward to lead exciting presentations as part of the “Real-world evidence in Alzheimer’s disease” sessions, including a plenary talk and four parallel sessions at this year's Alzheimer Europe Conference in Barcelona, so make sure to have a look at the events section.

Enjoy the read!
