Four researchers have been jointly awarded the prestigious Lundbeck Foundation Brain Prize in recognition of their contributions to our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease.
While development of clinical interventions for Alzheimer’s disease remains a struggle, our understanding of the disease and its mechanisms has been revolutionized over the past 30 years. This revolution is down to the commitment and perseverance of countless neuroscientists, four of whom have been honored with the 2018 Brain Prize.
The four outstanding scientists named as this year’s winners are Bart de Strooper (UK Dementia Research Institute, University College London, UK), Michal Goedert (Cambridge University, UK), Christian Haass (Ludwig–Maximilian University of Munich, Germany) and John Hardy (University College London, UK).
