Webinar: Untangling Tau

Thursday, Jun. 21, 2012 • 2:30 p.m.

Special guest Cure Alzheimer’s Fund researcher Dominic Walsh, Ph.D., and David Shenk, author of the national bestseller The Forgetting, held a free webinar about the role of Tau in Alzheimer’s on June 21, 2012.

Alzheimer’s research has for many years been dominated by a focus on Abeta plaques and largely has overlooked the other infamous hallmark of the disease—the Tau-based neurofibrillary tangles. Dr. Walsh explained his research project and its special significance to the field of Alzheimer’s research.
