Alzheimer’s is one of the most devastating diseases of our time. Of the top 10 causes of death in the U.S., it is the only one for which no effective or preventative treatment exists.

The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease is rising and is projected to more than double to nearly 14 million people by 2050. For millions of families and caregivers around the world, the need for an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is urgent.

Could a potential Alzheimer’s treatment be closer than we think? Research from Jerold Chun, M.D., Ph.D. and Tim Huang, Ph.D. are bringing us one step closer to understanding—and potentially treating—this devastating condition.

Join us as we explore the root cause of the disease and share information about the hope for new therapeutics.
  • New models to understand the brain and its diseases.
  • Novel targets for drugs that could slow or stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • The promise of next-generation drugs for neurodegenerative diseases. 
  • Currently available drugs that may help protect the brain against Alzheimer’s.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation and will give you an opportunity to personally connect with our scientists and have your questions answered.
