The three included Steve Wagner, Ph.D., Sangram S. Sisodia, Ph.D., and Chairman Rudy Tanzi, Ph.D. Learn about the Cure Alzheimer's Fund Research Consortium.
David Shenk, author of the national bestseller The Forgetting, Alzheimer’s: Portrait of an Epidemic, moderated the event.
The video is really fascinating, and the near the end the scientists sit around and discuss Alzheimer's in a relaxed candid fashion. It was really eye opening.
I know there is a tendency to think that nothing "fruitful" is happening. However, in the video below you will be hearing from three men who are devoting their lives to finding an effective treatment or therapy for Alzheimer's disease.
You will also learn that these very bright men are funny and interesting. I kept thinking, I would really like to hang out with these guys. At the end of the day, you might conclude they are a lot like you and me when they let their "hair down".

I am often asked for my recommendation on where to donate for Alzheimer's research. My answer is always the same - Cure Alzheimer's Fund. One hundred percent of every donation goes into Alzheimer's research. The Founding Families of the CAF pay the general and administrative costs of the fund out of their own pockets.
