Alzheimer's Reading Room

Join special guest, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Researcher Dominic Walsh, Ph.D., and David Shenk, author of the national bestseller, The Forgetting, for a free webinar about the role of tau in Alzheimer’s on Thurday, June 21, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. EST.

Alzheimer’s research for many years has been dominated by a focus on Abeta “plaques,” a focus that largely has overlooked the other infamous hallmark of the disease — the tau-based neurofibrillary “tangles.”

The research world recently has broadened its scope to include significant research into tau.

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is actively supporting this diversification by funding two tau-based projects.
