Somatotropic Signaling and Resilience to Aging and Alzheimer's Disease

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Project Narrative Alzheimer's disease is a major burden for older adults and the healthcare system in the United States. Aging is the main risk factor for Alzheimer's disease; however, families of centenarians inherit genes that delay aging and protect them from Alzheimer's disease. Identifying genes and gene functions that protect from the effects of aging is an important step in the development of effective therapies for Alzheimer's disease.
