ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
Join us as Dr. Jim Ray discusses the scientific challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, why existing drugs have failed and the strategies that MD Anderson’s Neurodegeneration Consortium scientists have developed to detect and slow or stop its progression, and the current state of Alzheimer’s disease drugs. A Q&A will follow the presentation.
