Brief description Our research team has recently shown that a vital signalling lipid called S1P is lost from the brains of people who are in the early stages of developing Alzheimer's Disease. S1P protects brain cells against toxic insults that cause Alzheimer's Disease. This project will investigate how loss of S1P sensitizes people to the development of Alzheimer’s Disease, and the effectiveness of clinical drugs that restore S1P signals in protecting against Alzheimer’s Disease and restoring brain function.
