The major risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the aging of the brain. However, the mechanisms at work in the aging brain that lead to AD are unclear. Our laboratory has defined the transcriptome of the human brain during aging on a genome-wide scale. This has led to the identification of age-related gene expression changes in the brain that distinguish normal aging from cognitive decline, including genes involved in synaptic function, learning and memory. We have now identified a central regulatory pathway of age-related gene expression in the brain that is dysregulated in AD.
Projects fall into three categories:
1. Model systems such as C. elegans and neurons in culture that recapitulate aspects of brain aging and AD enabling the in depth study of molecular and cellular mechanisms.
2. Genetically engineered mouse models that recapitulate human AD pathology and the aging process, and
3. Genetic and bioinformatic studies of the human brain in thousands of subjects followed longitudinally with neurological evaluations and memory testing.
Projects for students can be arranged in each of these areas, depending on the interest and background of the student.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
