March 22, 2017

Bloomington, IN - Researchers at Indiana University discovered last year that caffeine had the potential to embolden an enzyme, called NMNAT2, which has been shown to protect against dementia.

Hui-Chen Lu, who has led the study, believes that this discovery will advance efforts to develop drugs that can treat Azlheimer's and related neurodegenerative diseases. Lu is a Professor at the Gill Center for Biomolecular Science and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at IU.

This study was funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Belfer Family Foundation.
