ADRC Project 1
Genetic Mapping of Late Onset AD Genes
Ellen Wijsman, Ph.D., Principal Investigator
wijsman@u.washington.edu

This project seeks to identify new late onset AD loci using linkage analysis of late onset familial AD (LOFAD) families and age-of-onset as a quantitative trait phenotype related to AD. Aims are to identify the chromosomal regions containing LOFAD age-at-onset loci (Seattle LOFAD kindreds); to identify the chromosomal regions containing LOFAD age-at-onset loci (NIMH LOFAD kindreds); and to perform follow-up analysis of regions of interest detected in analysis of LOFAD families.
