Saturday Short

Today's short introduces ongoing research in Howard Weiner's' laboratory at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, into the role of the immune system in aging and development of Alzheimer's disease. The short, one among video competition winners uploaded to the NIH Director's Blog, features some of the researchers working to treat and prevent the disease. The song about the research is set to "Cups Song" from the film Pitch Perfect.

Other "Cool Videos" on the site (and on YouTube) include shorts about heart attack, discoveries to improve health, metabolomics, and myotonic dystrophy.
