IU researchers identify protein that contributes to tau neurotoxicity in Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine have identified a protein that interacts and enhances the spread of neurotoxic species of tau—which is primarily found in neurons that appear abnormal in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients.

IU researchers investigate brain’s immune cell response in Alzheimer’s disease

Indiana University School of Medicine researchers are investigating how the deficiency of a gene in immune cells can shape the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

IU Alzheimer’s study awarded nearly $50 million by NIH to continue groundbreaking research

The second largest federally funded research program at Indiana University School of Medicine will receive $48.8 million over the next five years, fueling the work of researchers as they seek to discover treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s researchers study drug efficacy in early stages of disease

Most drugs developed to treat Alzheimer’s disease have for years been ineffective in clinical trials. Researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine recently evaluated the efficacy of a failed clinical trial drug using their rigorous pipeline.
