Beyond the amyloid hypothesis: proteins that indicate cognitive stability

A recent proteomics analysis in Nature Communications from Emory researchers identifies key proteins connected with cognitive trajectory – meaning the rate at which someone starts to decline and develop mild cognitive impairment or dementia.

This paper fits in with the multi-year push for “unbiased” Alzheimer’s/aging research at Emory. The lead and senior authors are Aliza and Thomas Wingo, with proteomics from biochemist Nick Seyfried and company.

Dr. Wingo is a PBEE faculty member and Dr. Seyfried is a faculty member in the BCDB and NS programs.
