IGSB Core Member Co-Authors Paper

Barbara Stranger and her lab led analyses of data published in the journal, Science. The report, “Polarization of the Effects of Autoimmune and Neurodegenerative Risk Alleles in Leukocytes,” demonstrates how genetic variations among healthy, young individuals can influence immune cell function. Many of those variants are also genetic risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis later in life, offering new insight into disease pathology.
