Challenges and hopes in the fight against Alzheimer's disease


Natàlia Carulla, associate researcher at IRB Barcelona devoted to studying
the aggregation of the protein beta-amyloid, which is strongly associated
with Alzheimer's disease, explains her approach to reveal the role of this
protein in this neurodegenerative disease, a condition that affects millions
of elderly people worldwide.

In a study recently published in ACS Chemical Biology, Carulla describes the
aggregation structures of beta-amyloid that are toxic for neurons.
