Alzheimer's Germ Quest

About the challenge

Attention, scientists! Your research talent is wanted! If you want to find the cause of Alzheimer's disease and help millions of people suffering from it, join the Alzheimer's Germ Quest until December 31, 2020. You can also get a prize of $1,000,000!

5,500,000 million people stricken, 303 die per day which gives around 110 000 killed per year. These are horrifying statistics on Alzheimer's disease and no cure or prevention has yet been found.

But there are some optimistic news! Some studies have shown that Alzheimer's disease is an infection caused by microorganisms. Your challenge will be to discover that Alzheimer’s germ. The $1,000,000 prize will go to the scientist or team providing persuasive evidence—within 3 years— that a particular infectious agent is the cause of most Alzheimer’s disease.

Fill out a registration form at the Alzheimer's Germ Quest official website and strive to help find a remedy for people suffering from the Alzheimer's disease.
