In Pursuit Of Memory

Mar 13, 2019

Neuroscientist Joseph Jebelli became interested in Alzheimer’s disease as he watched his own grandfather go through it. There’s a good chance it’s touched someone in your life too; Jebelli calls it the next global pandemic.

Neuroscientist Joseph Jebelli says fear is at the heart of our challenge with Alzheimer’s, and it’s a fear he knows personally. He watched as his grandfather was getting lost and not recognizing his own wife. But his grandfather didn’t want to face that memory loss, and it’s a problem Jebelli sees in many patients. Joseph Jebelli has written a book about our fight against Alzheimer’s, and he joins us to tell his family’s story and the story of a disease he calls the next global pandemic. (Rebroadcast)

Joseph Jebelli is a neurobiologist whose work focuses on cell biology of Alzheimer's disease. His book is called In Pursuit of Memory: The Fight Against Alzheimer's [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible]
