Brief description Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias affect 230,000 people in Australia, with numbers expected to grow to 730,000 by 2050. The direct costs for health and residential care alone exceed $6.6 billion per annum. By identifying genes that protect degenerating neurons in the Alzheimer brain, a deeper understanding of the underlying processes will be gained and therapeutic targets will be defined that will assist in developing a therapy for a yet uncurable disease.
