A crowd lunched and listened to the principal investigator of Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's disease research talk about the advancements being made in detecting the disease.

On Tuesday, Dr. Neill Graff-Radford told a room full about the new studies that are coming out that could one day prove preventative for the disease.

"We have some interesting drugs, that might actually be helpful in preventing the disease, we're bringing everyone up to date, on where we are in the future of prevention," said Graff-Radford.
