Competing Paradigms in Alzheimer’s Research: Are We Closer to a Cure?

Description

Join us for CaringKind’s 30th Annual Research Meeting, where our panel of experts will discuss Competing Paradigms in Alzheimer’s Research, and how they impact the development of new drugs designed to treat, prevent, and cure Alzheimer’s disease. We’ll cover questions such as: What causes Alzheimer’s disease? What are the biggest barriers to developing new treatments? And what do we know about prevention, or a potential cure for the disease?

Alzheimer’s disease has been studied for over 100 years but the underlying cause of this devastating disease has remained unclear. However, the last several years have seen the emergence of new and surprising findings about the disease’s possible origins that are challenging the longstanding models guiding current therapeutic strategies. Join us for our 30th Annual Research Meeting where our panel of experts will discuss how old and emerging paradigms are driving the development of a new generation of drugs to treat, and possibly prevent, Alzheimer’s disease.
