Alzstream™ Webinar: Genes to Therapies – One Year Later

Genes to Therapies™: One Year Later

Genes to Therapies™ is the next phase of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund’s long-term plan for attacking Alzheimer’s disease from every possible angle. After locating nearly 100 gene variants that impact Alzheimer’s risk, researchers now plan to investigate the precise function of each gene, the consequence of each variant and precisely how to intervene to arrest the disease process.

Alzstream™ Webinar: The Cancer and Alzheimer’s Connection

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 • 2 p.m.

Learn about the fascinating connection between cancer and Alzheimer's from Dr. Alexandra Newton. Alexandra Newton, Ph.D., at University of California, San Diego has been studying the enzyme protein kinase C (PKC) for much of her career. While PKC has mainly been researched for its implications in cancer, we now suspect the enzyme plays a role in Alzheimer's disease as well.
