Background and activities

In my PhD project I aim to disentangle Alzheimer's disease (AD) by using rodent models, by answering four timely questions:

  • How well can we translate fluid biomarkers between AD models and patients? 
  • Is it possible to longitudinally measure in vivo biochemical changes in AD biomarkers in models?
  • Are repurposed drugs effective in hindering AD neuropathology in models? 
  • Can AD neuropathology spread be hindered when its cortical origin is manipulated?
