Weizmann in Focus, Episode 5: Breakthroughs in Brain Health

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, an ideal time to highlight the Weizmann Institute’s cutting-edge neuroscience research. In the fifth episode of Weizmann in Focus, CEO Dave Doneson celebrates the work of Prof. Michal Schwartz, the first in the world to prove the connection between the immune system and the brain. Prof. Schwartz’s pioneering investigations are paving the way to more effective treatments for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia ... and even a vaccine to slow the brain’s aging process.
