Proteins and Dysfunctional Metal Homeostasis in Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease

Ashley Bush, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Bush will explain the importance of normal transition metal metabolism and its regulation by proteins implicated in neurodegeneration. He will review the evidence of dysfunction of brain metal homeostasis as contributing to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease and the evidence supporting pharmacological adjustments of brain metal homeostasis as potential therapeutics for neurodegenerative disease.
