The demographic aging of Japan’s capital of Tokyo is advancing at an extreme rate, and measures to combat dementia are urgently needed. Basic remedies for dementia conditions that progress gradually such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, or frontotemporal lobar degeneration do not yet exist.
This project aims to promote the analysis of heretofore-unexamined abnormalities in the brain to create test tube, cellular, and animal models to reproduce disease states and develop drugs and treatments that will be able to suppress the progression of disease.
