As we age, several neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkin- son’s, and Huntington’s, become more prevalent. Dr. Martin Teintze will update participants in what is known about the biochemical and genetic triggers that can cause these disorders. We will also discuss potential thera- pies that might be able to arrest or reverse the degeneration.
