True North is driven to make a difference in the lives of all those who are touched by conditions related to aging, and specialize in research related to Alzheimer’s disease.

Some individuals with certain genes have a greater chance of developing diseases such as Alzheimer’s. This means if anyone in your family has Alzheimer’s, you may be at a higher risk of developing it as well. While this can be concerning, those individuals who have a family history and potentially carry the gene may be eligible to participate in clinical trials focused on prevention.
