Dr. Amaia Arranz studies Alzheimer's disease using murine xenograft models of human neurons and glial cells exposed to disease-associated factors. Dr. Arranz aims to unravel human-specific pathways and mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer´s and other neurodegenerative diseases to aid their diagnosis and treatment. In her talk, Dr. Arranz will present her research and elucidate the use of Denoise.ai in astrocyte quantification.
