Lisa Genova’s novel Still Alice depicts in fearless detail the life of a female professor after a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
The novel has spent over 40 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and is now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore. Moore has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for an Oscar for her role in this film.
A Harvard-educated neuroscientist with an undergraduate degree in biopsychology from Bates College, Genova travels worldwide speaking on Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, autism, and Huntington’s disease. She has appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, CNN, and the Today Show.
