Alzheimer's Disease: Unraveling the Mystery


Image of older man walking with young childThe future builds upon the events and experiences of the past. That’s certainly true of AD research. Our knowledge of AD is advancing rapidly, and we have much to celebrate in our scientific successes.

At the same time, we cannot forget that AD remains an urgent problem for our Nation. The challenge is to continue building on these discoveries so that we can create a brighter future in which the potential of successfully managing AD or even preventing this terrible disease can become a reality.
