Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia, affecting over 35 million people worldwide. Although genetic, biochemical and anatomical defects have been identified, there is no unifying model that explains the initiation and progression of the disease. My talk will provide a background on Alzheimer’s disease and introduce the model organism C. elegans, a small nematode worm that I am using to develop a model of the molecular interactions in Alzheimer’s disease.
