Karen Chang’s lab is working to understand the role interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase M (IRAK-M) plays in the dysfunctional immune response seen in Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Chang thinks that by blocking IRAK-M, the brain’s immune response can be restored and amyloid plaques will be removed. This endeavor marks a significant step toward creating an innovative immunological treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
