Portland Science Night

Thursday, March 4 at 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Virtual Event

More than five million people in the US have Alzheimer’s disease. Previous research into the cause of Alzheimer’s disease has focused on plaques and tangles in the brain. However, multiple clinical trials targeting these brain plaques have failed and there remains no cure for the disease. Scientists now realize that other features of the aging brain may hold the answers to this disease. Join Ashley Walker, assistant professor of human physiology, as she explains how artery health can contribute to Alzheimer’s disease.

The event is free, but registration is required for livestream link.
