Currently, there are limitations in the ability to accurately diagnose and treat Alzheimer's disease in living subjects. One of the more promising approaches involves the use of immunotherapy to treat Alzheimer's patients. We applied protein and peptide expression technology to the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid markers for both Alzheimer's disease diagnosis and treatment. The use of shotgun proteomics methods, in particular, provide molecular evidence of disease modifying effects.
Kelvin Lee is the Gore Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Director of the Delaware Biotechnology Institute at the University of Delaware. He recently moved his laboratory from Cornell University. His group has been active in the development of technologies for protein expression analysis as well as the application of proteomics methods to understanding gene expression, protein secretion, and Alzheimer's disease.
