NEW YORK, March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of a totally redesigned website for the Alzheimer's community, http://www.ALZinfo.org.

Visitors to the site will find the look to be inviting and sophisticated. The site's usability and navigation has been simplified to make it very user friendly. A special feature is ALZTalk. Like MySpace or Facebook, ALZTalk is a fun social networking environment that utilizes all the advantages of web 2.0 technologies complete with user profiles, forums and chat rooms. One community member, Mary from Canada, wrote: "I have met so many wonderful people here...and it's so nice to be able to share ideas and get some much needed support."

The new site provides users with a thorough overview of Alzheimer's, a disease which currently affects 5 million Americans. The website also includes Alzheimer's treatments, current research, where to find clinical trials, expert reviewed news, caregiver information, free access to Preserving Your Memory: the Magazine of Health and Hope, and more.

Echoing the sentiments of all parties involved in the site's construction, Michael Stern, Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation president commented, "Giving the ever-evolving content and information regarding Alzheimer's, we find that the new website design is both informative and accessible - a combination that is all too rare in our complex, increasingly technology-driven world."

http://www.ALZinfo.org is a tool of the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation to educate people about this devastating disease. The mission of the website is to educate, engage and create an online community with 24 hours a day, 7 days a week access to information and support, and it offers the most comprehensive database of medical and health care professionals and services available. 94 cents out of every dollar the charity receives goes directly to Alzheimer's research. See http://www.charitynavigator.com for full financial details.

About the Fisher Center

Conceived in 1995, the primary resources of the Foundation are directed toward scientific research into the cause and hopefully the cure of Alzheimer's disease. To this end, the Foundation under the direction of its founder, Zachary Fisher, and in collaboration with David Rockefeller, constructed the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at The Rockefeller University, headed by 2000 Nobel Prize winner, Paul Greengard, Ph.D. The 10,000 square foot laboratory is the most advanced facility of its kind in the country equipped with the latest equipment necessary to undertake an interdisciplinary assault on this disease.

The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research at The Rockefeller University publishes an average of 40 major findings a year in many major scientific journals, such as Nature, Science, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Fisher scientists continue to forge new pathways into finding Alzheimer's treatments. They are committed to making Alzheimer's disease nothing but a memory for everyone.
