Norelle Wildburger, PhD, of Washington University in St. Louis is using her PhRMA Foundation funding to better understand the development process of plaque and tangles in Alzheimer’s patients. She and her team have launched a project, working with advanced Alzheimer’s patients who are studied during hospice and whose brains are donated to science following death, that will help shed new light on the timing of Alzheimer’s treatments.
A short video explains and highlights Dr. Wildburger’s work. You can also watch an interview with Dr. Wildburger. She received a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Translational Medicine and Therapeutics in 2017.
