Review for Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a research scientist investigating Alzheimer's disease I am exposed daily to the complexities of the laboratory. My role as an advisor to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation provides me with the opportunity to experience the human face of the disease, as well as understand the challenges posed by the need to raise money to support the research we do. In addition to providing generous support for Alzheimer's research, The Fisher Foundation maintains an extremely useful Website (alzinfo.org) making available educational resources about Alzheimer's, as well as reports of recent medical and scientific progress in the field. One of my jobs is to review and edit scientific information so that it can be put on the website and be useful for caregivers and others interested in keeping abreast of current research and facts concerning the biology of Alzheimer's, while also providing useful tips to Alzheimer's caregivers. I commend the Fisher Foundation and its dedicated staff for their keen interest in finding a cure for this dread disease, for exercising care in providing useful information to the public and for their generous support.
