What do we do:
Dr. Agustín Ruiz, Research director
"The main objective of our genomic research group is to understand the causes of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias by integrating genetic, transcriptomic and proteomic data."GScholar
GR@ACE - Genomic Research at Fundació ACE
The GR@ACE project is a human genetics study aiming to discover new genes that cause Alzheimer's and use this information to propose new treatments to face the disease.
EXIT - Exosomes Isolation Tool with nanofluidic concentration Device
This research project uses technological advances in the field of nanotechnology and the separation of nanoparticles for the early clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
ADAPTED - Alzheimer’s Disease Apolipoprotein Pathology for Treatment Elucidation and Development
ADAPTED is a project that investigates the biological mechanisms through which the presence of the APOE gene increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's.
Study of rare variants in genes associated with Alzheimer's disease in the Spanish population
This project wants to study in depth and detect rare genetic variants associated with Alzheimer's. This is the first genomic study conducted in our country to address this issue specifically in Alzheimer's disease.
