Project description
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease and the most common cause of dementia. The aim of this project is to characterize the role of newly identified brain-derived factors in the pathogenic mechanisms of AD at the cellular level by utilizing cell-based models of AD and human AD brain samples. This project may lead to the identification of novel therapeutic targets and/or predictive biomarkers in AD.
