Another new member of the team is Dr. Wes Ashford, senior scientist at the Stanford/VA NIH Alzheimer's Center, whose expertise is neuropsychological testing and the early incidence of Alzheimer's Disease.
Wes has a B.S. from UC-Berkeley, M.D. from UCLA-Geffen School of Medicine, and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, also from UCLA.
Here is a summary of Dr. Ashford's AlzForum' presentation on genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's Disease:
...
The specific Gompertz parameters underlying AD are not understood, but even so, it is clear that ApoE genotype changes this curve, Ashford said.
...
ApoE exerts its main effect by influencing when people get AD, Ashford said. In a clinic population, the E4/4 genotype reduces the mean age of onset to 68 from 74 in E3/3 carriers.
Environmental factors and nonspecific genes also play a role in determining AD risk and may, in fact, have a relatively greater effect in very old age (see also Silverman et al., 2003). Ashford suggested that the E2 and E3 alleles, which evolved from the ancestral E4, better support the remodeling of dendrites and minimize neuronal stress over time (see also Live Discussion).

Dr. Ashford :
But she didn't tell you that's what she was doing?
Lori :
No, no, no...

Dr. Ashford :
I think that what the autopsy data shows, we are looking at people after they died, is very important. I think its a very good thing to look at a persons brain to see what was actually happening, Curtis already brought up the issue of my father having dementia, which I had the unfortunate experience of watching him from having a very good memory to gradually losing his memory. When he finally passed on I had his brain looked at to see what was actually happening.
