September - the World Alzheimer's Month – is dedicated to raising awareness of this difficult and severe neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people around the world. We would like to express our support and solidarity to all patients, families and caregivers who face the challenges of Alzheimer's disease every day. We are proud that through research conducted at our Institute we can contribute to the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
