Robert Vince, PhD, Director, Center for Drug Design (CDD) at University of Minnesota 
Dr. Vince will be speaking on exciting developments in recognizing and treating early Alzheimer’s Disease.
 
His research has resulted in the development of an non-invasive method for detection of early Alzheimer’s Disease by taking a spectral image of the retina of the eye. This method will allow diagnosis prior to obvious signs and symptoms. He has also developed new candidates for early treatment of Alzheimer’s. Determining Alzheimer's at earlier stages will assist in developing and testing drugs for treatment.

At 12:15 pm on October 9th, President John Chandler called the meeting to order at the Intercontinental Hotel. Laurie Murphy led the group in the Pledge of Alliance and a short reading. Dave Dominick introduced Ann as a soon to be Rotarian with the St Paul Rotary club. Linda Mulhern was the scribe for the meeting and Sherry Howe was able to greet and register members before and after the meeting.  John Chandler asked for a rose sale tally, but it wasn’t ready so hopefully we will have the information next week.

Bill Collins introduced himself and noted that he has been a Rotarian for 5 years. As an actor, he finds it interesting that the younger members have their script on their phones whereas he is used to practicing with an actual paper script. He owns the Camp Bar in St Paul and also a Chicago theater group. He also manages actors here locally. He and his partner are bee keepers and raise vegetables, but due to the late spring, the bees had to work a little harder this year to bring everything to fruition. One unknown note, his grandfather lost by one vote in the Illinois assembly to become the US senator for the state…was it fate or interesting politics in Illinois?
