Alzheimer's disease is a common affliction that disrupts the lives of millions and costs the country hundreds of millions of dollars. The federal government, state governments, philanthropic foundations, and industry have all committed resources to solving the Alzheimer's disease problem. Clinical and basic science investigators with a wide range of backgrounds have dedicated themselves to this disease. This talk will review the current state of Alzheimer's disease research and discuss where we stand in terms of a cure. This talk will try to predict where Alzheimer's disease research will go in the near future by considering where it's been in the recent past.
