In today’s Big Story podcast, a seminal 2006 research paper on Alzheimer’s disease has been cited more than 2,000 times over the past decade and a half. His findings informed much of the direction the field has taken since then. And recently, an investigation concluded that critical images in the newspaper may well have been fabricated.
Alzheimer’s is already something of a mystery of a disease. We know so little. And now it looks like we might not even know what we thought we knew. What happened? And what does that mean for so many years of work by so many doctors and scientists?
