Lilly Signals New Direction In Its Alzheimer’s Research

By Logan Lafferty

Eli Lilly & Co. is taking its Alzheimer’s disease research in a new direction, a move that deepens the drug maker’s efforts to find tests and treatments for the memory-robby disorder despite a costly setback last year…In 2009, the company hired Michael Hutton, a tau specialist from the Mayo Clinic, to bolster its efforts.
