WeCureALZ is a groundbreaking new project that for the first time is set to use the power of citizen science to conduct Alzheimer's research. Enabled by the support of the BrightFocus Foundation, the team is already preparing for the alpha testing of the first online activity—a game that will allow everyone to search for stalled capillaries in the brains of Alzheimer's-affected mice.

With a beta launch planned later this year, we thought it was about time we tell you the key part of the story—the science behind WeCureALZ, and what is it that you—citizen scientists—will be helping researchers do!

For more information on the science behind WeCureALZ, and what is it that you—citizen scientists—will be helping researchers do, read the full article provided by the PLOS blog: A Participatory Research Project Tackling Alzheimer's Disease.
