It takes all kinds to make our world the special and beautiful planet it is today. And it takes all kinds to get to where we are today in the field of Alzheimer’s research.
While we still don’t have a cure, or even very effective treatments and preventive measures, we’d be even further behind today’s knowledge of the disease if it weren’t for the amazing people who have dedicated their lives to studying it.
Which of these pioneering Alzheimer’s researchers does your personality most closely match? Perhaps you’re Robert Katzman, who served as a professor of neuroscience at the University of California. Or you could be Jerome H. Stone, the founder of the Alzheimer’s Association. If neither of those floats your boat, maybe you’re Emil Kraepelin, the founder of modern scientific psychology and a champion of the mentally ill and handicapped. You could even be the one and only Alois Alzheimer, discoverer of Alzheimer’s Disease!
