Q&A with a scientist
Q&A with a scientist: Help Accelerate Alzheimer’s Research by Playing a Game
Bradley Beach Public Library

Wednesday, Oct. 21, 3:30pm

Join SciStarter and Bradley Beach Public Library to learn about citizen science and how YOU can accelerate Alzheimer’s research by playing a game.

The Stall Catchers project is designed by researchers at Cornell University to advance Alzheimer’s solutions. This project focuses on one aspect of the disease: reduced blood flow in the brain. Learn more about Stall Catchers before the event: https://scistarter.org/nlm/stall-catchers-nlm

You can help by playing a simple game: view short videos from the brains of mice and “catch” stalls. We will teach you how to score blood vessels as “flowing” or “stalled." Even the most powerful computer technologies can’t do this accurately enough yet, but your keen eyes can help us process decades worth of data.

Meet Dr. Pietro Michelucci, Stall Catchers Project Lead, on October 21 at 3:30 PM ET during a live virtual event. Cynthia Becker from Bradley Beach Public Library will interview Dr. Michelucci about his research for the Stall Catchers project.

Join us on Zoom and submit your own questions on the Q&A/Chat features during the event.
