The gut-brain axis in Alzheimer’s Disease

The aim of the project is to investigate the connection between diet/berries, microbiota and the effect on cognition and the pathological changes linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Above all, we hope to be able to find links to APOE4, which half of all Alzheimer’s patients have, and which is a cholesterol-carrying protein. We hope to find new mechanisms linked to APOE4, which could be exploited by dietary intervention.
