Can we reverse the aging process?

The Wyss-Coray research team studies brain aging and neurodegeneration with a focus on age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. The lab is following up on earlier discoveries which showed circulatory blood factors can modulate brain structure and function and factors from young organisms can rejuvenate old brains. Current studies focus on the molecular basis of this systemic communication with the brain by employing a combination of genetic, cell biology, and proteomics approaches in model organisms and humans.
The lab is part of the Glenn Center for Aging at Stanford University, the Stanford Neurosciences Institute’s Brain Rejuvenation Project, The NIH Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and it is funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the National Institute on Aging, the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, and the NOMIS Foundation.
