Most available treatments target just one of the multiple processes that can lead to neurodegeneration, which may not be effective in completely addressing disease symptoms or progress, if at all.

But what if researchers harnessed the brain’s inherent capabilities to cleanse and heal itself? My colleagues and I in the Lukens Lab at the University of Virginia believe that the brain’s immune system may hold the key to neurodegenerative disease treatment. In our research, we found a protein that could be leveraged to help the brain’s immune cells, or microglia, stave off Alzheimer’s disease. READ MORE
