Summary

This collection of articles written by international Alzheimer's experts is intended to provide a detailed synopsis of the current state-of-the-art of Alzheimer's Disease across many disciplines. A discussion of current biophysical models and hypotheses regarding the pathology of AD serves as a foundation for a review of research models of AD and recent advances in the fields of in vivo and in vitro AD diagnostics. Experts weigh in on how research advances and accurate diagnostics pave the way for a robust pipeline of therapeutics to combat not only Alzheimer's Disease, but other neurodegenerative diseases via a myriad of different approaches.
