We the Scientists: How a Daring Team of Parents and Doctors Forged a New Path for Medicine

In Part 2 of the interview with Amy Dockser Marcus, Pulitzer Prize winning Wall Street Reporter and Author, she and host Meryl Comer discuss a rare disease often likened to Children’s Alzheimer’s.  The common thread is advancing the science with new pathways for treating disease and conducting research. Amy talks about if this new collaborative research model aimed at saving children would work for elderly populations with long-term chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s. In the process to accelerate new drug development, science may be forever changed.
