Latinas in STEM lead the way in the fight against Alzheimer's disease
It was in 1906 that Dr. Alois Alzheimer first identified abnormalities in cerebral parenchyma of a patient that had a novel behavioral disease process. Symptomatology included but was not limited to loss of memory, difficulty with speech and alterations in behavior. He found abnormally clustered cells and bundled fibers (amyloid plaques and tau tangles) in the brain tissue. Progress has been made over the last century, but the root causes, early diagnosis, treatment and prevention still elude our best and brightest scientists.
