Researchers are using state-of-the-art stem cell technology to develop a better understanding of how Alzheimer's disease starts and then progresses. Dr. Rick Livesey and his team at the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge have made a 'mini brain' that scientists can use to observe the disease for its entire cycle.
The new study by Dr. Livesey has provided a deeper insight into the development of Alzheimer's disease. The Alborada Trust granted 2 million pounds over five years for the research which enabled Dr. Livesey and his team to see if there was a way to replicate sporadic Alzheimer's disease. Their findings can be used in the development of new drugs.
