    Research Abstract

    Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder and is the most common cause of dementia. No effective treatments are currently available. The toxic amyloid peptide is central to disease pathology and is derived from breakdown of the Alzheimer’s amyloid precursor protein (APP). In this project we will examine the interactions between APP and the molecular machinery that controls its location in the cell and subsequent degradation.
