DRUG TRIALS: Challenges for Alzheimer’s and Other Urgent Needs
Presented in Partnership with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios
         and
In Collaboration with STAT

In Association with NOVA

This Forum explored the challenges and complexities of drug trials, and how they impact disease treatment and prevention  — particularly for conditions that currently have little or no therapeutic options. As a case study, the panel discussed Alzheimer’s and several drugs in development for that disease, but also addressed broader concerns related to the pharmaceutical testing pipeline for unmet medical needs as a whole. This event was presented in partnership with HHMI Tangled Bank Studios, in collaboration with STAT, and in association with NOVA.

You can watch the NOVA film “Can Alzheimer’s Be Stopped?” online.
