I am currently studying the effect of several drugs using the HTS platform on amyloid beta aggregation in an in vitro Alzheimer’s Disease model. My research includes the introduction of Familial AD mutations into a neural progenitor cell line, establishing a 3D cell culture model for the disease and testing several drug libraries on this cell culture model to study amyloid beta aggregation. I am also interested in studying the effects of amyloid beta on neuroinflammation and neuronal death.
