Dr. Alison Goate, a professor of genetics in psychiatry at the Washington University School of Medicine, speaks at the Second Annual Research Forum of the Alzheimer's Association Mid-Missouri Chapter on Friday. A molecular geneticist, Goate led a team in England in 1991 that identified the first early-onset Alzheimer's mutation in the APP gene. Subsequent research has discovered two more mutations that contribute to the development of Alzheimer's.
From left: Gilbert Pritzel, Judi Hasler, Kay Niemeier and Art and Pat Geren listen as Dr. Alison Goate lectures on the genetic factors that contribute to the development of Alzheimer's at the Lenoir Woods Community Center on Friday. Pritzel's wife, the mother of Hasler and Neimeier, passed away as an Alzheimer's patient. The three drove to the forum from Jefferson City to further their understanding of the disease. They all credit the support they received from the Mid-Missouri Alzheimer's Association as something that helped them to deal with the disease. The Gerens have been residents of Lenoir for over 20 years and wanted more information on the disease, which Pat was diagnosed with over 4 years ago.
