Untangling Alzheimer’s Disease: Identification Of Early Events Contributing To Pathogenesis

Info

While Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is predominantly diagnosed late in life, research suggests that brain changes associated with this disorder occur decades before. The goal of the Velazquez Lab at Arizona State University's Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center is to identify the early events that trigger the progression of AD. Dr. Velazquez will first present his team’s recent discovery of a newly identified protein, the retinoblastoma binding protein 7 (Rbbp7), and its role against tau acetylation, an early pathological event in AD
