  3. May 12, 2016C.S.I. at Waterloo Pharmacy: PhD candidate Tarek Mohamed explains his Cognitive Science Investigation into Alzheimer’s

    One, two, three. It takes just three seconds for a new case of Alzheimer’s to develop worldwide. As of 2015, Alzheimer’s affects nearly 50 million patients and has a global economic cost of $820 billion. In Canada alone, about 1 million patients suffer from this devastating disorder. In short, Alzheimer’s is a cureless, debilitating, and costly disease.
