The changing face of Alzheimer's disease: From early onset families
in Colombia to rethinking the basics.
Kenneth Kosik, Professor of Neuroscience, UC Santa Barbara
Dr. Kosik has worked with an extended family in Colombia that
has early onset Alzheimer's disease. He will review his experience
in working with this project and its implications for understanding
the mechanisms of AD.
What is the genetic mutation in the Colombian family?
What can the early forms of AD tell us about the sporadic form?
