Dr. Marc Flajolet, Research Assistant Professor at the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research

Dr. Flajolet’s research led to the discovery that a protein called “Casein Kinase 1” regulates the production of beta-amyloid in the brain, suggesting that inhibitors of this protein might be useful in treating Alzheimer’s disease. To further study the mechanisms underlying these discoveries and in an attempt to uncover novel approaches to tackle the disease, Dr. Flajolet’s recent effort led to a series of results further validating the relevance of Autophagy (a biological phenomenon used by the cells to remove cellular debris and unwanted materials) for Alzheimer’s disease.
