ADDF Professionals is a growing community of individuals from diverse industries who strongly believe that together, we can do something now to conquer Alzheimer’s disease – one of the greatest global health challenges of our time. We believe we have a voice and an obligation to take action that will give hope to future generations.
The Professionals aim to:
• Channel expressed interest from the professional community into mutually beneficial and engaging educational and fundraising activities.
• Serve as ambassadors, raising the ADDF’s profile and awareness of its mission among new constituencies.
• Align with representatives from various industries who could potentially introduce new partnership opportunities to the ADDF.
• Raise much-needed funding for the ADDF to increase its ability to invest in promising research.
The $100,000 fundraising goal of the Challenge was set to fund Dr. Lawrence Wennogle’s project at the NYC-based biotechnology company, Intra-Cellular Therapies, Inc. Intra-Cellular has discovered distinct small molecular weight compounds that have been shown to lower beta-amyloid levels. Additional proceeds will benefit other promising preclinical programs like Dr. Wennogle’s.
