Decoding the molecular ties between vascular disease and Alzheimer’s

(Source – National Institutes of Health)

Seeking a better understanding of vascular contributions to Alzheimer’s disease, the National Institutes of Health has launched the Molecular Mechanisms of the Vascular Etiology of Alzheimer’s Disease (M²OVE-AD) Consortium, a team-science venture to build a nuanced model of Alzheimer’s disease that more accurately reflects its many causes and pathways. Scientists have long been interested in how the vascular system — the body’s network of large and small blood vessels — may be involved in the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Scientists from diverse fields using the latest methodologies will work collaboratively towards shared goals: to dissect the complex molecular mechanisms by which vascular risk factors influence Alzheimer’s disease and identify new targets for treatment and prevention.
