Research at the Division of Neurogeriatrics

Denna sida på svenska

We investigate Alzheimer disease from different perspec­tives, emphasizing the integration of basic neuroscience research with clinical research, and molecular genetics.

We are studying the generation of beta-amyloid (Aβ) and its relation with other pathological markers of the disease, the basic mechanisms behind genetic and environmental risk factors for AD, the relationship between altered tau protein and the progression of neurofibrillary changes, and the characterization of genes associated with AD.
