This project focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, an age-related neurodegenerative disorder. Using transgenic mutant mice with the APP-PSEN1 gene mutations, which mimic familial Alzheimer’s disease, this study investigates a means of identifying early stages of Alzheimer’s through testing function of specific retinal cell types.
