Brief description Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by progressive loss of cognition. Few Australians have remained untouched by the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in their families or social circles. Unfortunately, there is no cure and current therapies are limited to modest symptomatic relief. This project will explore the role of a protein that regulates the structural integrity of brain cells in disease, and test if targeting this protein could prevent disease progression.
