Looking to a Future Without Alzheimer's

2/11/2023; 82 minutes

Alzheimer's disease is a major health crisis that is projected to become an even larger threat in the coming decades. According to the National Institute on Aging, the number of Americans 65 and older with Alzheimer's could rise from 5.8 million in 2020 to 13.8 million by 2050. Given the severity of this health crisis and the toll it takes on patients, their families and society, we must be prepared today to address the needs of tomorrow. Dean Frank LaFerla of UC Irvine's School of Biological Sciences presents an overview of the state of Alzheimer's disease research. Following his presentation, the panel discusses emerging trends in research, care and the upcoming challenges we will face and how we might mitigate them. Recorded on 11/15/2022. (#38660)
