Reexamining Alzheimer’s: Is it a singular disease?
  • Moderator Kim Goh - Principal, ClearView Healthcare Partners
  • Panelist Casey Lynch - CEO, Cortexyme

The medical community is shifting its perspective on Alzheimer’s disease from a singular disease to a complex web of Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias, and investors need to do the same. By dissecting and appreciating the complexity of the disease, new players with novel approaches to the treatment and management of these conditions are emerging including the need to rethink the targets for drug therapies. Even regulatory agencies are taking a more critical look at the downstream complexities in regard to clinical trials and biomarkers while pushing forward solutions to bolster clinical development. Other organizations must take the same approach and recalibrate their thinking of Alzheimer’s as a singular disease. Join us as we discuss what we’ve learned over the past year and the future of clinical development for Alzheimer’s disease.
