The funding will help support the whole-genome and RNA sequencing of Alzheimer's disease patients to advance biomarker development.

Using omics and other data, researchers performed  network analyses that pointed to interactions between human herpesviruses and other Alzheimer's disease risk factors.

The UK-based Dementia Discovery Fund is investing $1.3M in Immuneering's drug-discovery technology in search of new molecular entities for treating Alzheimer's.

By combining iPSCs, CRISPR gene editing, and transcriptomic approaches, researchers examined the effects of an Alzheimer's disease risk variant on brain cells.

The company plans to test both its current technology and explore novel signatures using samples from Mayo's biobank.

Using large-scale GWAS data, researchers saw shared genetic contributors for ALS and frontotemporal dementia, as well as ALS and progressive supranuclear palsy.

Amarantus has reacquired LymPro Test, MSPrecise, and NuroPro and said that it plans to assign the assets to a new subsidiary.
