In the final episode of UHN’s “Behind the Breakthrough” podcast, we hear from Dr. Donald Weaver, Director of the Krembil Research Institute.

Dr. Weaver talks about his groundbreaking research into Alzheimer’s disease, and explains how drug research works and the challenges of getting to a clinical trial.

He also tells us why his response to questions of “What next?” is a cheery “More failure!,” the purpose of his weekly story-telling in team meetings, and talks about his poetry career.
