title RLE Investigator Profile: Collin M. Stultz
description A video profile accompanying recent news from MIT on Alzheimer’s research. From the press release (not this video): “‘We generated lots and lots of structures for both normal tau and a mutant form’ associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer’s,’ Stultz said. By comparing the two sets, the researchers found one structure that was more common in the mutant form — and therefore likely to ‘play a role in the pathologic process.’” A potential drug target. Read the details in his PLoS Computational Biology article.
producer Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at MIT, Greg Hren
featuring Collin M. Stultz, Ph.D, M.D.
