HAPI Hour Seminar: Conflicts of Interest and Commercial Bias in Alzheimer’s Disease Research

Susan Molchan is a psychiatrist and nuclear medicine physician, and the previous Chair of the National Physicians Alliance. Her years at the NIMH encompassed research on aging, dementia, and neuroimaging to launch the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), a public-private partnership to develop biomarkers, which generated an open-access database. She has also spent 5 years as a medical officer at the FDA.

Dr. Molchan currently practices psychiatry and authors pieces for HealthNewsReview.org, which offers the public a view of news on health and medical issues unbiased by industry influence.


The Health and the Public Interest Graduate Program is pleased to invite the community to the HAPI Seminar Series, a forum in which students, faculty, and the community can engage with key leaders in health care research, policy, and advocacy.

Refreshments will be provided.

This series is free and open to the public.
