New Research, Funds Raise Hopes for Alzheimer's Cure

Posted on February 14th, 2012 by

The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it is making $50 million available immediately to support stepped-up research on possible cures and new treatments for Alzheimer's disease…Dr. Ron Petersen, a neurologist and pioneer in Alzheimer's research, was among the first to diagnose the disease in perhaps its most famous victim:  former U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Dr. Petersen says in the years since then, there have been great strides in our understanding of the illness, with some of the most rapid progress coming in just the past five years.
