New Nature Medicine Paper

In a new Nature Medicine publication, Prof. Mathias Jucker, Head of the Department of Cellular Neurology at the HIH, & Prof. Lary C. Walker from the Department of Neurology and the Emory National Primate Research Center at the Emory University (Atlanta) show that there is credible evidence which suggests that, under extraordinary circumstances, Alzheimer’s disease may be transmitted by a prion-like mechanism - yielding insights into both the basic biology of this neurodegenerative disorder and strategies for early prevention.
