Jan 2016 The Translational Scientist article: "The Overactive Brain Michela Gallagher was studying aging in lab rats when an unusual finding launched her on a translational journey that now sees her poised to initiate a Phase III trial of a drug to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s dementia."

Jan 2016 The Translational Scientist article: "Untangling Tau As a neurologist, Bradley Hyman has seen first-hand the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on patients and their families. His lab examines the genetic and neuropathophysiological factors that play a part in the disease, and recently discovered a rare pathological form of the tau protein, which may hold the key to how Alzheimer’s spreads through the brain."
