Accumulating evidence suggests that cerebrovascular dysfunction occurs early in Alzheimer’s disease in the form of reduced cerebral blood flow, neurovascular uncoupling, and endothelial cell dysfunction. My current work focuses on the role of tau pathology in the development of cerebrovascular dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease. I am specifically investigating the impact of soluble transmissible tau aggregates on endothelial cell function in vitro using primary cell cultures and in vivo using mouse models of tauopathy.
