UT Southwestern research into mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease takes center stage
Through the generous support of the Winspear Family Center for Research on the Neuropathology of Alzheimer's Disease, the Alzheimer's Disease Center at UT Southwestern is providing videos of all lectures from its symposium on the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases. The symposium was held in February of 2012 and featured a multidisciplinary group of researchers at UT Southwestern.
