Older women are twice as likely as men to develop Alzheimer’s disease. Priyanka Saminathan, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow at La Jolla Institute for Immunology, will share her research on how both sex and age play a vital role in driving Alzheimer’s disease and discuss the impact her research could have on the development of new bio-markers and therapeutics.
