Summary: Using sophisticated proteomic techniques, my current work focuses on developing a blood-based diagnostic test to indentify Alzheimer's disease before the onset of symptoms. Currently the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is often captured too late, is inconsistent and costly; therefore, a cheap and simple blood test that can be routinely used in clinics would be ideal. This blood test could also contribute to the selection and stratification of patients for therapeutic drug trials.
