Project

ADAIR–Novel biomarker discovery to unravel the link of air pollution and Alzheimer’s disease

Goal: The project investigates the novel, ambitious hypothesis that the air pollutant exposure alters cellular mechanisms and functions in the brain, resulting in the expression of measurable biomarkers. By identifying biomarkers, the individuals with increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease can be stratified prior to the disease onset and preventive measures can be targeted to the specific at-risk populations in order to be most effective.
