Did you know that a breakdown in the mitochondria is the first cellular sign of Alzheimer’s disease?
The reason why is a mystery. But it won’t be for long.
Dr. Etienne Hebert-Chatelain and his team are figuring out how to adjust the output of mitochondria in Alzheimer’s disease. When they do, it could change everything. Your online gift will be rushed to the lab to help crack the code and make life better for the nearly 1 million Canadians who will face dementia by 2031.
"To find a cure, the fundamental biological processes at work in Alzheimer’s need to be understood. It’s critical that we intensify our research efforts to uncover these cellular pathways and develop new therapies to stop this disease."
