At this Spring’s Alzheimer’s Research Update We Explore:
Could the fountain of youth be inside of us, just waiting to be harnessed?
We are excited to welcome Dr. Wyss-Coray to our Spring Community Alzheimer’s Research Update. Dr. Wyss-Coray’s provocative research works to understand how the brain ages and changes when it experiences neurodegeneration like the kind caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Particularly, Dr. Wyss-Coray’s lab studies how blood factors can change the brain way the brain functions at the molecular, cellular, and functional level. Using both young and old mice, his lab has demonstrated that factors in the blood of young mice and help refresh and restore the brains of older mice.
Dr. Wyss-Coray’s work has garnered big interest in the scientific and economic community. His findings on brain aging were voted the 2nd place Breakthrough of the Year in 2014 by Science Magazine and presented as a Global Ted Talk. He also presented talks at the World Economic Forum and Google Zeitgeist.
Could young blood be the key to rejuvenating an aging brain?
That’s the intriguing premise of the work of Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray, who is the co-director of the Stanford Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in Palo Alto, California. On February 16th, the night before the Nantz National Alzheimer Center Symposium, Dr. Wyss-Coray will present at the annual Alzheimer’s Association Houston & Southeast Texas Spring Community Alzheimer’s Research Update, held at the Hope and Healing Center and Institute.
