On today’s show, we’ll focus on the future of biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease. We know that amyloid beta and tau protein deposit long before patients with Alzheimer’s develop symptoms. If we could use biomarkers to detect this pathology early, and treat patients early, could we prevent the progression to dementia? Our guests today are leaders in the development of biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease - Dr. Suzanne Schindler, Associate Professor of Neurology at Washington University in St. Louis and Dr. Gil Rabinovici, Professor of Neurology and Radiology at the University of California San Francisco. They’ll talk with Dr. Doug Ney of UC Denver about the expanding role of biomarkers in Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment. Series 3, Episode 5
