Discovering life-changing dementia treatments
Researchers at the Alzheimer’s Research UK Oxford Drug Discovery Institute (ARUK ODDI) at the University of Oxford are working collaboratively with other centres around the country to study the role of proteins and cells in the brain, and develop drugs to treat AD. In these resources, inspired by their research, students apply what they know to assess a new Alzheimer's drug (KS4, and use new information in KS5), assess evidence of Alzheimer's risk-factors using a science reliability checklist (KS4), and look at family trees to explore the genetics of Alzheimer's (KS5).
