Titre de la conférence: A multiomics approach to understanding Alzheimer's disease

Résumé: As the population ages, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are reaching epidemic levels. AD is a complex and heterogeneous disorder with multifactorial etiology. Multidisciplinary approaches that are sensitive to the multiple dementing pathologies as well as mechanisms of brain aging are needed to better understand AD. Using data from MRI, cerebrovascular proteomics, measures of cerebral blood flow, and behavioral measures in mouse models of AD, I have examined the contributions of neuronal and neurovascular damage on cognitive dysfunction. Given the current consensus that therapeutic interventions must be initiated early in the disease course to have positive effects, I will discuss the potential for emerging imaging markers from functional MRI to identify people very early in the AD disease trajectory, before the onset of any clinical symptoms. Finally, I will discuss how the combined use of biomarkers from both imaging and biofluids-based omics has the potential to improve the detection of preclinical changes characteristic of the AD disease process and differentiate it from other age-related dementias.
