Always a pleasure to catch-up with Editorial Board member, Bengt Winblad (Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden), who chatted with us on several topics including emerging therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and the role of the FKBP51-Hsp90 complex in underlying pathophysiological processes.
1. What are the most promising emerging therapeutic targets for AD in in vitro assays and in human cell lines? (0:05)
2. Could you tell us a little about the role of the FKBP51-Hsp90 complex in the pathophysiological processes underlying AD? (10:03)
