Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and is a growing health crisis worldwide.  Approximately every 60 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, which causes memory loss, mood disorders, and eventually leads to death.  

Even after decades of research, Alzheimer’s disease currently has few treatments and no cure.  But groups like Brightfocus are spearheading groundbreaking research strategies that promise to investigate the disease like never before. Listen to the experts speak on future of Alzheimer’s disease research below. Many thanks to all at Brightfocus AD Fast Track for helping us get there!
