Opening a new path for Alzheimer’s drug discovery
Accelerating drug discovery in neurodegenerative diseases through causal analysis of cell dynamics in simple organisms
Neurodegenerative diseases are hard to understand!
Although there has been great progress in basic and preclinical research for neurodegenerative disease, we have yet to identify the key underlying molecular defects or pathways that give rise to many of these conditions — observations which would yield precise targets for novel drugs.

We have found a way, through computational modelling of simple organisms - based on the equivalence of the biological processes (not animal models)!
