Objectives and Roles

Our research projects are to identify the molecular basis for the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and develop therapies for this disease.

Summary of Research Activities

  1. Clarify the causal relationships among β-amyloid, tau and neurodegeneration in AD, and address the molecular mechanisms how genetic and non-genetic risk factors contribute to AD.
  2. Develop innovative therapies for AD based on our findings.
