In Washington D.C.,the MetLife Foundation has just announced the award of $700,000 to four specialists in the Alzheimer's field: William E. Klunk, M.D., Ph.D. and Chester A. Mathis, Ph.D., of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; John C. Morris, M.D., of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and Ronald C. Petersen, M.D., Ph.D., of Mayo Clinic. The awards recognized the scientists for their clinical research on early detection and diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
Furthermore, Northwestern University scientists have reported success in a 30 patient study of a new bio-marker that could assist in the detection of Alzheimer's. Using the researcher's technique of triangulation, it will be easier in the future for physicians to make a diagnosis.
