Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are characterized by progressive loss of neurons in the central nervous system. It is estimated that by 2050, one in 85 individuals will be affected by Alzheimer’s disease alone. As part of our collaboration with AstraZeneca, I investigate novel pathways which can be targeted pharmacologically to halt or reverse progression of neurodegenerative cascades.
