Plasma Biomarkers to Examine the Relationship Between Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease Pathologies

Ageing is the major demographic change of this millennium, with important implications for disease, disability, handicap and health care practice and policy. By the year 2030, a conservative estimate is that 25% of all elderly will have significant neuropsychiatric syndromes. The major brain disorder of concern is Alzheimer's disease (AD). This project will use -omics technologies and targeted techniques to identify biomarkers of early and pre-clinical stages of AD, and follow them longitudinally. Detection of dementia-related changes in the preclinical stages will ultimately provide a diagnostic tool and allow prevention and targeted early intervention for neurocognitive disorders.
