Amyloid-Beta: Villain or Hero in Alzheimer’s Disease? (Podcast)

Last week I was interviewed on Straight from a Scientist, a podcast series where scientists talk about their research for a general audience. In Part 1, which you can listen to here, we had an informal conversation about my research and background. You can now listen to Part 2, a roundtable segment where the host, Connor Wander, and I discuss current topics in Alzheimer’s disease research, including a new look at the physiological roles of amyloid-beta. Enjoy!

AlzScience Interview on Straight from a Scientist Podcast

Straight from a Scientist is a podcast series where scientists talk about their research for a general audience. I recently had the amazing opportunity to be interviewed on the show, and I’ve pasted the link below where you can listen to it. It was a great discussion about Alzheimer’s disease, axon guidance, and life as an undergraduate researcher. Be sure to stay tuned for the show’s Alzheimer’s Disease Roundtable episode, which should be coming out within the next week.

One-Month Hiatus from AlzScience

Hi everyone! Thanks for your amazing support for AlzScience thus far. I wanted to let my subscribers know that I will be taking a brief hiatus from AlzScience during the month of May. I’m taking a backpacking trip across Europe and won’t have the time or the internet access to post articles regularly. (To follow me on my journey, check out my travel blog, Brains and Backpacks.) At the end of May I’ll begin a summer internship in¬†Switzerland, where I’ll be able to resume writing articles. Until then, stay curious!

AlzScience’s Five Most Popular Articles of 2016

As 2016 approaches a close, it’s a good time to reflect on the past year and prepare for the next one. It’s been six months since I created AlzScience, and I have to say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The¬†support and feedback I’ve received for this project has been phenomenal, and I thank you all for that. This is something that I hope to continue for many years to come.

In celebration of 2016, I’ve compiled the top five most popular AlzScience articles based on total number of views. I encourage you to check them out if you weren’t able to read them the first time around. Also, if you have any topics that you would like me to write about in the upcoming year, feel free to contact me via WordPress, Facebook, or Twitter!
