“The Biophysics Behind Alzheimer’s disease: Analyzing the Development of Phosphorylated Tau Protein”

Project Abstract

 Under the guidance of Dr. Chung, Mr. Mueller, and Mr. Scurato- Andrea will be engaged in analyzing the interactions created through the Phosphorylation of the disordered Tau protein to recreate a phosphorylated tau protein similar to the tau found in Alzheimer’s disease.
