Research Outline     

We are interested in the genes and proteins associated with the pathogenic pathway of Alzheimer's disease (AD), especially the ones involved in the production of amyloid beta (Abeta) peptide. Specifically, we are studying the interactions among those macromolecules using the approaches of enzymology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. The ultimate goal is to develop potential therapeutic agents that will retard or even halt the development of AD by slowing down the accumulation of Abeta.
