Research summaryBiomarkers and therapeutic targets of Alzheimer's disease

Research

Working with Dr Ping Liu.

  1. Neurobiological basis and intervention of cognitive decline associated with aging and Alzheimer's disease.
  2. Biological basis of learning and memory. A combination of behavioural, neurochemical, molecular biological, immunohistochemical, and electrophysiological approaches is being used.
