Translating genetic data in Alzheimer’s into potential therapies with Owen Peters

Written by Sharon Salt, Editor

Although risk genes for Alzheimer’s increase the likelihood of an individual developing the disease, it does not guarantee that it will happen. Not every person who has one or even two APOE4 genes develop Alzheimer’s disease, and it can even occur in people who don’t even have an APOE4 gene. Researchers also suspect that many more genes that haven’t been identified yet can affect the risk of developing the disease. To find out more about risk genes and Alzheimer’s disease, we spoke with Owen Peters (UK DRI at Cardiff University, UK) at the UK–Korea Neuroscience Symposium (12–13 August, London, UK)....
