Mechanism of Genetic Mutations Known To Cause Familial Alzheimer’s Disease

New research, led by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researcher Chunyu Wang, has solved one mystery in the development of Familial Alzheimer’s Disease (FAD), a genetic variant of the disease that affects a small fraction of the Alzheimer’s population. In a paper published January 6 in the journal Nature Communications, Wang and his team follow the… Mechanism of Genetic Mutations Known To Cause Familial Alzheimer’s Disease
