On May 5, 2014, Dr. Adrian Hobden will discuss “Alzheinmer’s Disease – a 21st Century Pandemic?” Over the last thousand years there have been many pandemics leading to millions of deaths worldwide. Until this century those pandemics were all the result of infectious agents. Today, however, we are facing a pandemic which is not caused by an infectious agent and which threatens to bankrupt the healthcare systems of all western countries - Alzheimer's Disease. In this talk, Adrian Hobden will discuss the history and epidemiology, the causes and characteristics, and the race to find treatments for this terrible disease. Dr. Hobden has graduate degrees in microbiology, molecular biology and genetics, and he spent 35 years working in the pharmaceutical industry, primarily in research and development. He spent 8 years working on a drug to slow the progression of Alzheimer's, and he will present historical and current information to us about this fascinating and important disease.
