NIH Grant to support Mount Sinai Research Program to Create Biological Network Model of Alzheimer’s Disease in partnership with New York Stem Cell Foundation
Date:9/18/2013

New York (PRWEB) September 18, 2013

Scientists from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in partnership with the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF), and other institutions, have been awarded a multi-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study Alzheimer’s disease.

This study will apply innovative analytical methods to large-scale molecular, cellular, and clinical data from Alzheimer’s patients to construct biological network models and gain new insights into the complex mechanisms of the disease, and identify potential therapeutic targets. Biological network models are complex mathematical representation of large amounts of data. These networks provide a unified map that integrates not only the key genes involved in a disease but also the biological pathways that those genes control.

The NIH grant will enable the research team at Mount Sinai and partner institutions to build upon the discovery published earlier this year in the journal Cell of a network of genes as a key mechanism driving Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (LOAD) through involvement in the inflammatory response in the brain.

Eric Schadt, PhD, The Jean C. and James W. Crystal Professor of Genomics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Director of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology, will be a principal investigator in the study. “With this grant, we can continue to build and refine our predictive model of Alzheimer’s disease to yield valuable insights into the complex mechanism of the disease and potential therapies. In the same way that sophisticated predictive mathematical models drive decision making in the global financial markets, our field of medical research has begun to rely on network models to derive meaning from vast amounts of patient data, enabling better understanding and treatment of human disease,” said Dr. Schadt.
