In the first installment of this debate, our experts discuss the contribution of genetics to Alzheimer’s risk, the differences between early- and late-onset disease, and how new technologies have advanced our understanding of this ever-expanding field.
Identification of loci associated with risk of Parkinson’s disease adds to understanding of genetic factors contributing to development of the disease
Theories surrounding gender-specific Alzheimer’s disease risk and APOE mutations have been challenged in a new meta-analysis.
While at AAIC 2017 in London, Lauren Pulling (Editor, NC) spoke to Julie Williams about her extensive work in Alzheimer’s genetics and risk factors.
