Precision Therapies for Age-Related Neurodegenerative Diseases

As scientists unravel the ways that genetic inheritance and aging influence the function of a person’s cells, tissues and organs, they are also finding new ways to prevent and treat neurodegenerative diseases.

In his Front Row lecture, Scripps Research professor Jeff Kelly shares his research into a broad set of disorders where aberrantly folded proteins lead to degeneration of the heart and/or nervous system. He explains hows his research led to the first regulatory agency-approved therapy for these so-called amyloid diseases and how he and his team are developing future precision therapies for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
