There are more than 6 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease. Through the efforts of our world-class researchers and Nobel-prize winning mouse models, JAX is committed to finding solutions to end the disease.
June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month and JAX is proud to show our support to #ENDALZ. Join us this month by learning more about our research below.
Some people carry mutations that would usually predispose them to Alzheimer's disease but instead remain healthy. Now JAX researcher Catherine Kaczorowski is studying this phenomenon and identifying future approaches that may lead to resilience-based therapeutics.
The Alzheimer's Association awarded a grant to Jackson Laboratory researchers, Gareth Howell, Ph.D. and Kristen Onos, Ph.D., for their work deciphering microglial responses to amyloid and tau with wild-derived mice.
