Arizona State University is one of seven Arizona biomedical institutions who make up the Arizona Alzheimer’s Consortium. The Consortium brings together a collaborative team of leading medical and scientific experts with one focus: finding effective and preventive treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from ASU participate in this Consortium and the university plays an active role in advancing the mission.
ASU invites patients, caregivers and family members, and others interested in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease to an interactive forum that shares current information and ongoing advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
