    Research Abstract

    Lipocalin 2 (Lcn2) is a newly identified (neuro)inflammatory component that, together with its receptor, megalin, can play important roles in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) development. This project will investigate Lcn2 and megalin as novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets for early AD, addressing two fundamental research topics in this field: i.e. early diagnosis and early intervention, aiming to prevent AD development or at least stop or slow down disease progression.
