Dr. Michael Jackson (pictured) at the University of Manitoba is fascinated by the way some healthy brain processes are subverted during Alzheimer’s Disease to turn toxic. Specifically, he studies brain-cell inflammation.

In most people, this kind of inflammation can help protect against micro-level threats. But during Alzheimer’s, it actually speeds up disease processes.

Find out more about this vital research – and its relevance for developing better Alzheimer’s treatments – in this ASRP Exchange online presentation.
