Dr. Lisa M. Munter will be investigating a novel aspect of the cholesterol metabolism with respect to Alzheimer’s disease. Her goal is to understand how dietary cholesterol affects generation of harmful amyloid peptides. She hopes to reveal whether certain lipoprotein particles of the blood may trigger amyloid generation in the brain. Dr. Munter is a researcher and professor at McGill University and the recipient of an ASRP biomedical grant.
A long and prosperous life should end with human dignity.
