USC Files Countersuit Against UC-San Diego Over Alzheimer’s Research Project
On Friday, the University of Southern California filed a countersuit in San Diego Superior Court against UC-San Diego for control over a major research project on Alzheimer's disease. The countersuit came one week after a San Diego Superior Court judge ruled that UC-San Diego controls the nationwide cooperative study. UC-San Diego filed a lawsuit last month after USC hired a former employee and prominent Alzheimer's researcher working on the study to lead USC's new Alzheimer's institute.
