Keith Fargo, director of scientific programs and outreach at the Alzheimer’s Association, will present “The Latest in Alzheimer’s Research” and discuss recent clinical trials.
Fargo oversees the Alzheimer’s Association scientific publications, including Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association and the annual Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report. Additionally, he is responsible for the TrialMatch program, a service that connects people with ongoing clinical studies in their areas, and the association’s International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment.
Fargo received his doctorate from Indiana University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine. Before joining the Alzheimer’s Association, Fargo researched the regenerative processes in the nervous system. He held appointments as a research scientist at the Edward Hines Jr. Veterans Affairs Hospital Rehabilitation Research and Development Program and as an assistant research professor at the Loyola University Chicago Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
Fargo’s lecture is sponsored by the Department of Psychology and is presented by the College of Letters and Science’s Distinguished Speakers Series. The series, which began in the spring of 2011, brings distinguished scholars to MSU to give public talks and to meet with faculty and students to enrich the intellectual life on campus and enhance research connections.
