National Institutes of Health: Unraveling the Mystery of Alzheimer's Disease

NIH: Unraveling the Mystery of Alzheimer's Disease 

Scientists think that as many as 4.5 million Americans suffer from Alzheimers disease. With November being Alzheimers Disease Awareness Month, were featuring an interview with an expert on the subject. Dr. Laurie Ryan is with the National Institute on Aging. We start by asking what exactly is Alzheimers disease?

 

Meryl Comer, the president of the Geoffrey Beene Foundation Alzheimer's Initiative, discussed her personal experience with Alzheimer's disease at a press conference where new efforts to fight Alzheimer's disease were unveiled.

 

The Role of Innate Immune System in Aging and Development of Alzheimer's Disease

Research in Howard Weiners laboratory at Brigham & Womens Hospital in Boston supported by a Transformational R01 Grant Role of the innate immune system in aging and the development of Alzheimers disease. We believe Alzheimers Disease is caused by an imbalance between production and clearance of amyloid protein leading to accumulation in the brain causing memory loss. Accumulation of amyloid is related to a defect in the ability of microglia cells in the brain and scavenger cells in the blood to clear amyloid from the brain and prevent brain damage.

 

Simbios is the NIHfunded center for PhysicsBased Simulation of Biological Structures. Simbios provides infrastructure software and training to help biomedical researchers understand biological form and function as they create novel drugs synthetic tissues medical devices and surgical interventions. Simbios has worked with Dr. Vijay Pande's lab to develop Omnia an opensource suite of tools for simulating and analyzing molecules and how they move. This video highlights a common application of the Omnia tools: understanding protein folding and its role in disease.
