France to expand 4th "Plan Alzheimer"
Thursday 22 November 2012
On 22 November, the French government tasked two experts to evaluate the 2008-2012 Plan Alzheimer: Prof Joel Ankri, Geriatrician at the Sainte Périne - Chardon Lagache - Rossini hospital in Paris and Dr. Christine van Broeckhoven, Professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Antwerp. They will evaluate the progress made by the plan and make recommendations for improvements. They’ll also suggest ways to expand the plan beyond Alzheimer’s disease, to include all neurodegenerative diseases. Their final report is expected in May 2013.
