New Historical Timeline of Alzheimer Disease Research Milestones
Alzforum is out with a timeline of the fundamental discoveries and time-tested milestones in Alzheimer disease research since 1906.
From 1984 onwards, you'll see University of Washington Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) findings in the genetics of AD and frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) 1995, 1996, 1998, epidemiology of AD 2004; spinal fluid biomarkers 2007; GWAS risk loci 2010, 2013; as well as contributions to National Institute on Aging - NIH diagnostic guidelines 2012 and work to define cognitive differences between AD trajectory and healthy aging 2014.
