The report, titled “Open Science, Big Data, and You: Working Together to Treat and Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias, ” details the support needed to reach the ultimate research goal of the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease, to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer’s and related dementias by 2025.
