A new lead in the quest to understand Alzheimer’s

A consortium of European researchers is pursuing a new and unexpected lead in Alzheimer’s research. They are examining the intestinal microbiome and its effect on neurodegeneration. EPFL is coordinating the consortium, which is a part of the pan-European Horizon 2020 initiative.
