McLendon to examine protein protectiveness against Alzheimer’s

Jared McLendon, PhD, associate in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, has received a three-year, $175,000 grant from the Alzheimer’s Association examining the molecular significance of Sorbs2 in Alzheimer’s disease. Higher levels of this protein have been associated with delayed onset of the disease by more than 11 years and, conversely, decreased levels of Sorbs2 have been observed in people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. “This […]
