A Mass General research team led by Drs. Rudolph Tanzi, vice-chair of MGH Neurology, and Doo Yeon Kim, assistant in neuroscience, built upon their previous “Alzheimer’s in a dish” model, the first petri dish system to fully replicate the pathology behind Alzheimer’s. They did this by adding inflammatory mechanisms, which are chemical or cellular processes in the body that leads to inflammation. This updated drug discovery innovation could be a crucial step in advancing the treatment of this devastating disease. #MassGeneralAdvances
