We discovered new potent multitarget lead compounds for synaptoprotection in Alzheimer’s disease

Happy to announce our publication in Journal of Medicinal Chemistry: Discovery of Potent Cholinesterase Inhibition-Based Multi-Target-Directed Lead Compounds for Synaptoprotection in Alzheimer’s Disease (click to open the link on the publisher's site) Graphical abstract Abstract: Drug development efforts that focused on single targets failed to provide effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Therefore, we designed …

Zebrafish is not far from humans when it comes to how the brain is affected by Alzheimer’s disease

Our recent publication about comprehensive comparison of the single cell/nucleus transcriptomics profiles of human Alzheimer's brains and zebrafish Alzheimer's model is out. We found remarkable similarities and biologically meaningful differences. To compare transcriptomics data in zebrafish model of AD and Alzheimer's patients (in entorhinal cortex, superior frontal gyrus, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex), we first reliably integrated …

Missing Link Between Alzheimer’s and Vascular Disease Found?

Meeri Kim's article in the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Newsroom on our recent collaborative study with Dr. Annie Lee, Dr. Badri Vardarajan and Dr. Richard Mayeux. For more than 20 years, scientists have known that people with hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, or obesity have a higher likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease. The conditions can …

Novel traumatic injury model of human brain developed in Kizil Lab

Our new publication on how #human #neural #stem cells could increase their ability to regenerate lost #neurons after #traumatic #brain #injury in #3D environment is out!

We generated a novel method for reconstructing neuronal networks of human brain and modeling Alzheimer’s disease in 3D.

We are glad to announce our first ever pre-print server publication that documents an innovative 3D system allowing human neural stem cells to produce our brain's various neuronal types and to model Alzheimer's disease with major pathological outcomes replicated outside the brain in a 3D space. With this model, we can study the effects of …
