Plenary Meetings

Next meeting is May 30, 2019 at 10:00 in the 1877 Club. Our speaker will be Paola Sacchetti, PhD Director, Neuroscience Program.

Alzheimer’s disease: the status quo and the emergence of new hypotheses and treatments: 

Current medications for Alzheimer’s disease have limited efficacy in treating the main symptoms of this common form of dementia.  Their moderate effectiveness has, in recent years, cast doubt on the long standing believed cause of Alzheimer’s disease, the accumulation of toxic proteins in the brain, known as the amyloid beta hypothesis. Thus new hypotheses on the potential cause of the disease are surfacing and new potential treatments are being evaluated. Some of these more recent hypotheses will be explored and current experiments under way at the University of Hartford will be discussed.
