Alzheimer’s disease is a catastrophic diagnosis that invariably leads to death. A study at Linköping University now singles out a new candidate for a medicine: a molecule that can get through the blood-brain barrier and reduce the toxicity in the substance associated with the disease.
The board of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences today reached a decision on the report of misconduct concerning a researcher at the faculty. The decision was based on the faculty’s assessment, including the investigation conducted by three external experts. The investigation criticises firstly a lack of compliance with regulations relating to laboratory work, and secondly a publication. The faculty’s decision is therefore to criticise the researcher for misconduct.
