Enabling high-throughput genomic approaches in Alzheimers disease.
Alzheimer's Research UK
Funding is requested to support high-throughput genomic approaches that capitalises on and enriches the existing ARUK Consortium resource. This will maximise the value of substantive on-going ARUK-funded resources, namely the ARUK DNA Bank and the Brains for Dementia Research (BDR) initiative. Since its inception over a decade ago the ARUK DNA Bank has grown to include over 4200 samples with additional samples still being added from collaborating centres on a yearly basis. We now wish to collaborate with the BDR and incorporate their resource into our bank. All additional samples will be included in our current and future genetic studies.
