“Our understanding of dementia science today owes much to these seven researchers and their collaborators,” said the Association’s chief science officer Maria C. Carrillo in a press release. “The celebration of their accomplishments and their powerful work in diverse areas of study is an inspiration to all of us in the science community as we strive to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.”
Currently Prof Nordberg’s research is focussed on developing biomarkers for early diagnosis as well as new drug targets. The impact of this work has been highlighted several times through high-profile awards, such as the 2020 European Grand Prix for Research on Alzheimer’s, the 2017 Grand Silver Medal for Outstanding Research from Karolinska Institutet, and the 2014 Queen Silvia Prize for outstanding Alzheimer’s Research.
