Dr. Zhu’s research focuses on what causes neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related diseases.
" Alzheimer’s disease is a major public health problem because it has a huge impact on individuals, families, and society and it has attracted increasing public attention as the population ages which highlights the urgency to understand and treat this disease effectively. We have demonstrated that both oxidative stress and cell cycle-related abnormalities are among the earliest contributors to the disease.”
