Today (Wednesday 24 June) researchers from the US suggest that the menopause could account for women being at greater risk of dementia than men. The findings are published in the scientific journal, Neurology. Women are a marginalised majority when it comes to dementia More women than men are affected by dementia and account for two-thirds…
Today (Monday 22 June) some dementia researchers funded by Alzheimer’s Research UK will head back into the lab at the University of Cambridge, while ensuring they comply with the strict government guidelines on social distancing. While resourceful scientists funded by the Abington-based charity were still managing to do some work in innovative ways wherever possible…
Today (Monday 22 June) dementia researchers funded by Alzheimer’s Research UK are back in the lab at the University of York, while ensuring they comply with the strict government guidelines on social distancing. While resourceful scientists funded by the UK’s leading dementia research charity were still undertaking some research in innovative ways wherever possible from…
Researchers at the University of Bristol are looking to better understand how suspected risk genes for Alzheimer’s could shed light on new disease mechanisms and help design drugs targeting the disease.
Researchers at the University of Southampton are working to understand why amyloid builds up in blood vessels in Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at University College London are looking at how aging interacts with our genes and our diet during Alzheimer’s disease.
Genetic differences in the clusterin gene have been linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, this project will try to find the reason for this effect.
Prof Stephen Wharton from the University of Sheffield is investigating the role of a molecule called occludin in nerve cells during the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr Evans will use genetic engineering to investigate one of the proteins that regulates levels of amyloid in human brain cells.
Researchers at the University of Southampton are looking at whether we can improve our understanding of the brain’s immune cells by using the brain scans.
