Harnessing the Brain’s Immune Cells to Stave off Alzheimer’s and Other Neurodegenerative Diseases

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Summary: Researchers have identified a protein that could be leveraged to help microglia in the brain stave off Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
