Media Highlights Featuring USC Leonard Davis Experts 

Nature quoted University Professor Caleb Finch on why humans and chimpanzees might have developed APOE – a type of protein in the brain that controls how plaques can form – for different evolutionary functions. Science and Scientific American also quoted Finch on the recent study that found chimpanzees might also develop Alzheimer's disease.

NPR quoted Associate Professor Susan Enguidanos on recent findings that hospices with the highest rate of so-called live discharges also have the highest profits.
