What Will it Take to Defeat Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Conditions?
Lennart Mucke, MD
Director, Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease
Joseph B. Martin Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience and Professor of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco
Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower, in conjunction with the Memory Assessment Center at Eisenhower Medical Center, proudly present the 8th Annual Leonore Annenberg Lecture.
Free admission and open to the public; reservations are not required.
Dr. Mucke will introduce us to the many facets of research around Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a heartbreaking illness characterized by progressive memory loss and other cognitive functions. Although there are no effective treatments to prevent, halt or reverse AD, Dr. Mucke will review some of the exciting cutting-edge genetic and biological research studies being performed across science, technology and medicine to unravel the causes of this mysterious illness. He will provide insights into some of the obstacles to developing effective treatments for AD, and potential strategies for overcoming them in the near future, bringing hope for patients, caregivers, families and society.
There will be ample time to answer questions from the audience after Dr. Mucke’s presentation. In addition, all guests are invited to meet Dr. Mucke at an informal reception with light refreshments following the presentation.
