Biography

 Dr. Tanzi’s research is focused on identifying and characterizing gene mutants and variations that are associated with Alzheimer’s Disease. His group discovered mutations in three genes, amyloid precursor protein (APP), presenilin (PS)-1 and (PS)-2, that cause early-onset familial Alzheimer’s Disease. His lab is developing several potential treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr Tanzi’s group has also discovered genes implicated in other neurological disorders, such as Wilson’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, and autism.
