Postdoctoral Researcher at Harvard Medical School and winner of the US Alzheimers Institutes research grant, Kourosh Shahpasand made the remarks during an interview with Mehr News Agency on Wednesday.
The Iranian scientist, who recently became a faculty member of Irans acclaimed Royan institute, won the award for his extensive research on the Alzheimers.
