Dr. William H. Frey II is Senior Research Director of the HealthPartners Alzheimer’s Research Center and Center for Memory and Aging at Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Dr. Frey’s noninvasive intranasal method for bypassing the blood-brain barrier to target therapeutic agents to the brain has captured the interest of physicians, pharmaceutical companies and scientists. The intranasal insulin treatment he developed for Alzheimer’s disease has been shown in human clinical trials to improve memory in both Alzheimer’s patients and normal adults. His intranasal therapeutic cell delivery and treatment methods have been validated in animals for Parkinson’s, stroke, MS and other brain disorders. Dr. Frey has been interviewed on Good Morning America, The Today Show, 20/20, All Things Considered.
