#1406: "Scientists And Medicine"

Can Alzheimer’s disease be reversed? Just asking that question likely evokes strong opinions and emotions. But one neuroscientist says it may be possible if science is willing to get uncomfortable.  Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about the new book The End of Alzheimer’s.

We’ll also talk to the winner of fellowship from the NIH about his research into HIV and other chronic diseases…and we’ll spend an academic minute searching for happiness in a depressing world.
