In this episode, Dr. Eeks chats with Dr. Nicholas Seyfried about his research on a protein(s) in the brain that may hold the key to making people resilient to Alzheimer's Disease, a growing concern in western nations with aging populations and those who have a family history of the disease.
In the podcast, Dr. Seyfried discusses what the pathological hallmarks are of Alzheimer's Disease and why cognitive impairment happens. He then describes why certain proteins in the brain, with a special focus on one called Neuritin, may make people resilient to Alzheimer's and how approaches to Alzheimer's disease may evolve over the next several years. He also discusses evidence-based prevention strategies that are good for everyone to know.
Dr. Seyfried is director of the Emory Integrated Proteomics Core at Emory University School of Medicine and a professor in the department of biochemistry. The Seyfried Lab at Emory focuses on the relationship between proteomics and biology to tackle Alzheimer's Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
