A team of scientists from Loschmidt Laboratories together with colleagues from Faculty of Science, Masaryk University, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University, Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute and International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne’s University Hospital Brno and Faculty of Medicine MU is closer to the answer how to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease.
