The Molecular Etiology of Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a growing global healthcare epidemic. Owing to advances in technology, genome‐scale studies of various layers of molecular information have been undertaken in recent years and robust variation in key loci have now been published and reproduced by others. This mini‐symposium highlights four key areas of current research in the field of molecular biology in Alzheimer’s disease, including articles focussed on large‐scale genomic profiling, epigenetic research, integrative multi‐omic approaches and how these can be appropriately modelled to address reverse causality. This mini‐symposium provides a timely update on research focussed on elucidating the molecular etiology of Alzheimer’s disease to date and highlights new methodological advances that could enable neuroscientists to identify novel therapeutic targets.
