With people living longer than ever, a UCI doctor says the need for research into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is imperative.

Frank LaFerla, dean of UCI’s Ayala School of Biological Sciences, spoke to a packed room at the Newport Beach Central Library on Jan. 25. LaFerla is also director of the National Institutes of Health-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center at UCI, one of only 29 Alzheimer’s centers in the country.
