Cambridge scientists map vulnerability to Alzheimer’s in healthy brain

A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge has studied data from healthy human brain tissue, revealing a signature of proteins in specific areas of the brain that could dictate vulnerability to damage in Alzheimer’s. The findings help to explain the characteristic spread of damage across the brain that is observed in the disease and the findings could help to inform future drug discovery efforts. The results are published on 10 August in the journal Science Advances.
