Senior Consultant and Subject Matter Expert at SYNAPS Dx
While a postdoctoral fellow at Washington University in St. Louis, Norelle Wildburger developed a revolutionary imaging technology for measuring plaque and tau tangle growth in the human brain, which was previously impossible. The new method, known as SILK-SIMS, is helping scientists go back in time and identify how and when changes have occurred in the Alzheimer’s disease brain.
This short video explains Dr. Wildburger’s work. Also, in this video she describes SILK-SIMS and how she and her colleague Dr. Randall Bateman are using cutting-edge research to advance therapeutic development for treating Alzheimer’s disease.
