Genetic counseling is a 2-way street between counselor and the counseled. In this article, both share experiences gained through more than 25 years of searching for the gene, finding the presenilin-1 Alzheimer's disease gene, and waiting for a cure. "Research Families" made research models a reality. Few family members requested presymptomatic testing.
