Ageing and Alzheimer’s Disease: the search for the cure
Alzheimer’s has been a tough nut to crack, but we are excited that, for the first time, science, diagnostics, and drug trials are aligning.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia - a brain disease where the neurons die off leading to memory loss and confusion. It is incurable, becoming more prevalent and is a tremendous burden on healthcare.
At the Florey, we have several major projects to determine the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and how it is linked to its major risk factor, ageing. We are also carrying out imaging projects to improve diagnosis and prediction, as well as clinical trials of potentially curable drugs.
During this webinar, Professor Ashley Bush will review the latest exciting progress in Alzheimer’s and ageing research at the Florey.
