The law instructs the US government to develop its first-ever strategic plan for battling Alzheimer’s disease, the dementia-inducing brain disorder that is expected to afflict at least 11 million US citizens by 2050…After the committee's quarterly meeting yesterday, Ronald Petersen, chairman of the Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care and Services, tells Nature how his panel is helping to shape the fight against Alzheimer’s.
