Project Description Researchers Funding
Metallomic Mapping of the Aging Brain in Trg2576 Transgenic Mouse Model

The goal of this project is to perform the first high-resolution metallomic brain maps of key biometals (copper, zinc, iron) during normal brain aging and in Alzheimer’s disease in order to develop disease-modifying treatments that target normalization of biometal distribution and metal-protein interactions in the brain.
