The Stall Catchers project is designed by researchers at Cornell University to advance Alzheimer’s solutions. This project focuses on one aspect of the disease: reduced blood flow in the brain.

You can help by playing a simple game: view short videos from the brains of mice and “catch” stalls. We will teach you how to score blood vessels as “flowing” or “stalled." Even the most powerful computer technologies can’t do this accurately enough yet, but your keen eyes can help us process decades worth of data.
Meet Dr. Pietro Michelucci, Stall Catchers Project Lead, on Thursday, July 23 during a live virtual event. Stephanie Bragg and Angie Andre of Tredyffrin Township Libraries & Paoli Library will be joining to ask about how Dr. Michelucci became a scientist, his education, and his career path, as well as his research for the Stall Catchers project. Join us on Zoom and submit your own questions on the Q&A/Chat features during the event. This event is supported by Tredyffrin Township Libraries, National Network of Libraries of Medicine - Middle Atlantic Region, All of Us PA, and SciStarter.
