About Benjamin Alper

Professor Benjamin Alper is Assistant Professor of Experimental Biochemistry. Research interests include biochemistry, molecular biology, yeast, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease.

Cerebral accumulation of plaques made up of neurotoxic amyloid beta peptides is a primary event in Alzheimer's disease pathology.  We are developing methods to disrupt amyloid plaque formation, and to promote destruction of neurotoxic amyloid beta peptides.
