Join us as Dr. Jim Ray discusses the scientific challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, why existing drugs have failed and the strategies NDC scientists have developed to detect and slow or stop its progression. Afterwards, he’ll join a specially selected panel of experts to answer questions. They’ll provide insights into research, resources, how to improve quality of life, and the family journey.
NEURODEGENERATION CONSORTIUM (NDC)
Led by Dr. Jim Ray, the NDC is dedicated to its mission to slow, stop, or reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a transformational collaboration among Baylor College of Medicine, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. NDC scientists are discovering new targets for Alzheimer’s disease and things are changing. After more than a decade with no new drugs and no existing drugs that can slow the disease, a new generation of drug candidates has started late stage clinical trials.
