Silo Pharma Enters into Sponsored Research Agreement with Columbia University to Develop Psychedelic Therapeutics for Alzheimer’s Disease
This agreement incorporates the work of Dr. Christine Ann Denny, an Associate Professor of Clinical Neurobiology (in Psychiatry) at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Denny and her team are focusing their efforts on the molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory, including diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. An estimated 5.8 million Americans, including one in ten people, age 65 and older, currently live with Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Denny’s pioneering research into whether ketamine and the novel inventions that may be licensed by Silo may improve memory retrieval, halt, or even reverse, the process of Alzheimer's disease-related to memory loss or cognitive aging, could have life-altering implications for people suffering with everything from Alzheimer’s disease to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
