Scientist makes 'mini brain' in lab to discover cure for Alzheimer's

A new study provided a deeper insight into the development of Alzheimer's disease.

London: A new study provided a deeper insight into the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Dr Rick Livesey and his team at the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge are working with Alzheimer's Research UK, using state-of-the-art stem cell technology to develop a better understanding of how the disease starts and then progresses, the Daily Express reported.

Dr Livesey makes a "mini brain" that scientists can use to observe the disease for its entire cycle.

Dr Livesey approached the charity to see if there was a way to replicate sporadic Alzheimer's disease in the lab and he has been given a grant of 2million pounds over five years from the Alborada Trust to see if this is possible, and to use their findings in the development of new drugs.
