The Effects of Amyloid Beta on Living Neuronal Networks

Funding Agency: Virginia Center for Aging

Dates 2014-2015

Faculty: Joseph J Pancrazio (PI)

This seed grant explores the effects of a key biomolecule in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers Disease on the functional activity derived from cultured neuronal networks. If successful, this project will demonstrate a novel screening platform for therapeutic strategies targeting neuromodulatory actions of amyloid beta.
