3D brain models advance Alzheimer’s disease research at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A 3D model of brain organoids — “a minibrain in a dish” — mimics human brain structure and provides a new scientific strategy for exploring the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, Mayo Clinic research discovered. The study, which was published in Nature Communications, finds that the minibrain — an induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cerebral organoid 3D […]

Could regenerative medicine hold a key to understanding Alzheimer’s disease?

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

September is World Alzheimer’s Month, a time to raise awareness of research to unlock scientific mysteries around a disease that robs people of their memory, independence and ultimately their ability to think and reason. Focused on disease causes and cures, the Center for Regenerative Medicine is driving innovation as a collaborative partner in Mayo Clinic’s […]

Diabetes 3, 2, 1

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Understanding the Connection Often people with diabetes have brain changes that are hallmarks of both Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. Some researchers believe that each condition fuels the damage caused by the other. That link may occur as a result of the ways that type 2 diabetes affects the ability of the brain and other […]
