Self-assembled hydrogels as a model for neurodegeneration [ 2016 - 2020 ]

Research Grant

[Cite as]

Brief description Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease which currently affects over 340,000 Australians. Often, symptoms of AD are not apparent until the disease is well advanced, limiting chances of successful treatment. In this project, hydrogels made from biocompatible peptides will be used to grow neural cell culture models to study the development of the disease in its early stages. This will help to develop new diagnostic tools for the early detection of AD.
