One of the main focuses of the Flowers lab is understanding the impact of the glycoprotein, APOE, on the early pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and using this knowledge for the effective diagnosis and treatment of AD. We use human induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs) and advanced technologies including mass spectrometric (MS) and functional metabolism techniques to better understand the changes that occur between the different APOE genotypes as well as in AD.
