Despite major advances in medicine, diseases of the brain continue to plague our society. Fortunately, because of the work of many dedicated scientists, a three-decades-long effort to conquer diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease is beginning to pay off. Schenk will explore what we know about the brain – often called "the last frontier of medicine" – and describe the journey from an idea to the patient's bedside for new innovative treatments.
