Leading Therapeutics Development in New Directions

At the ADDF, we are among the world’s leaders in identifying cutting-edge ideas and investing in breakthrough research to forge the best path to effective Alzheimer’s therapeutics.

We know successful treatment will ultimately rely on a combination of therapies that work against a range of targets informed by the biology of aging, providing personalized approaches for each patient. We are dedicated to driving research and resources forward to achieve this goal.

Fast-Tracking Diagnostics Development

More accurate, accessible, and affordable tools for the early detection and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s are essential to defeat this devastating disease. As in everything we do, we are taking a 360-degree approach, working diligently to ensure every potential drug target has corresponding biomarkers.

Our $100 million Diagnostics Accelerator initiative, which launched its second phase last year, has united preeminent philanthropists and renowned scientists in the quest to speed development of these critical tools. We are proud to have been one of the most significant supporters of this crucial research in 2023.

Revolutionizing Alzheimer’s Prevention

Prevention is a key pillar in the ADDF’s fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Delaying onset by just five years may result in up to 50% lower disease prevalence.

This year, we launched a first-of-its-kind Precision Prevention Partnership, which will look at therapeutics and lifestyle interventions in tandem to revolutionize the way we treat and prevent this disease. We also continued to play a leading role in providing resources on the latest brain health findings and lifestyle recommendations, vetted by our team of in-house neuroscientists.

Thought Leadership

In 2023, the ADDF continued to expand our global presence, using our platform at conferences and summits across the world to shape the direction of the field and guide resources in the right direction to accelerate research and get treatments into the hands of patients as quickly as possible. We were honored to be included among the top authorities in the medical community, with Dr. Howard Fillit and Mark Roithmayr speaking alongside the Milken Institute’s Michael Milken, Gates Ventures’ Niranjan Bose, and Eli Lilly’s Anne White to name just a few.

We also convened several of the most exciting voices in Alzheimer’s research at our Tomorrow’s Breakthroughs Today Scientific Symposium Series, founded in partnership with Heidi and Tom McWilliams, which each year features three world-class scientists discussing the path toward new treatments for Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Recognizing Revolutionary Ideas

Recognizing Revolutionary Ideas

Each year, the ADDF awards the Melvin R. Goodes Prize for Excellence in Alzheimer’s Drug Development to a scientist whose cutting-edge work based on the biology of aging is making a significant and lasting impact on the field.

Our 2023 winner, Rhoda Au, PhD, MBA, Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the Boston University Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine, was selected in recognition of her pioneering work creating digital biomarkers that may help detect warning signs of Alzheimer’s earlier than ever.

Dr. Au’s research leverages technology from smartphones and tablets to collect data on Alzheimer’s-related characteristics, which can help to detect the disease 20 to 30 years before symptoms present. The data is used to create digital profiles that can differentiate between people with stable cognition, cognitive decline, and dementia. Digital biomarkers like those being developed by Dr. Au will make it easier and more accessible to monitor for warning signs of dementia, enabling patients to be monitored in their own homes rather than having to commute to a physician’s office.
