New Hope for Alzheimer’s: Emerging Gene and Stem Cell Therapies


February 10, 2020
6:30 – 8:30 pm


NYSCF Research Institute
619 West 54th Street

Alzheimer’s is a mysterious and complex disease that has proven incredibly challenging to treat. Research has shown that certain genetic variants can make people vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease, while other genetic variants can actually protect against it. By taking advantage of these discoveries and the power of stem cells, scientists are already testing new gene and stem cell therapies in patients. Join the experts behind these breakthroughs for an interactive discussion about the promising future of Alzheimer’s treatments.
