N.C. A&T examines Alzheimer’s COAACH

We hope we can find a cure or a therapeutic drug," said Goldie Byrd, a biology professor and A&T's lead Alzheimer's researcher.
"The truth is, we don't know what causes Alzheimer's," Byrd said, "and we don't know how to cure it." In search of samples Before coming to A&T in 2004, Byrd took a yearlong sabbatical at Duke University, where she worked with human genes. She was interested in Alzheimer's research. Byrd, who is black, had family members with Alzheimer's. Byrd, who also is the dean of A&T's College of Arts and Sciences, said the research group has passed its goals. A&T, she notes proudly, has recruited more people than the other three schools. Help wanted Byrd and others from A&T have gone through Greensboro and across the state looking for volunteers wherever they can find them. Churches. Community groups. Barber shops. For the Alzheimer's study, Byrd's group traveled to people's homes, sometimes several hours from Greensboro, to do tests and draw blood. They said the personal information would remain confidential and participants could drop out at anytime. They promised to keep participants updated on what research was found. "I know what it would take for me to give consent to take my mother's blood," Byrd said. "If she was alive and in her 70s or 80s, I wouldn't do that unless I thought the people doing this had her best interests at heart and treated her with dignity and respect." These recruitment efforts led to a research paper that Byrd and others at A&T published earlier this year. Byrd was a co-author of the report. One of the report's main authors was Margaret A. Pericak-Vance, a scientist Byrd worked with at Duke on her sabbatical a decade ago. During their home visits, Byrd's team sees the stress that caregivers are under.
