Analysis of Recessive Alzheimer's disease
Thousands of blood DNA samples from Alzheimer's cases are stored at the Dementia Research Centre at Queen Square. The objective of this project is to fund a study into one thousand of these individual DNA samples, using a core technique known as Genome Wide Association (GWA). Each test costs £100. A sample of 1,000 is needed for a thorough study into the causes of early-onset Alzheimer's disease.
