In this lecture, you will hear about work conducted by Beth Stutzmann, Ph.D, and her research team at Rosalind Franklin University/The Chicago Medical School. She and her team have found a signaling abnormality that emerges early in the disease process, and it is directly linked to the cellular mechanisms that form and preserve memories. Not only does this signaling deficit alter memory function, it also accelerates beta amyloid formation and many other AD features. They have also developed novel compounds to normalize this pathological process, and are working to bring this to the clinic for an effective means to preserve memory functions in AD patients.
