Alzheimer’s disease

We research the underlying causes of Alzheimer's disease, including genetics and environmental factors, to determine why only some people are affected. We also research the mechanisms that lead to disease to discover/isolate events at the cellular level that cause Alzheimer's disease. Pre-symptomatic changes may hold the answer for providing a window to intervene and stop this disease before it takes a hold.
