UT Health San Antonio for a global team uncovering clues to Alzheimer’s disease

Twenty one million. It’s the number of genetic variations in the human genome that researchers sift through to identify patterns that predispose people to Alzheimer’s disease.

Thanks to an international collaboration advanced by faculty at Texas Health Science Center San Antonio, also known as UT Health San Antonio, more genetic variations for Alzheimer’s disease are known today than ever before. The list of gene variants recognized for late-onset Alzheimer’s disease has grown from one in 2009 to 40 in 2022, and this spring scientists published an expanded list of 75, some of which are considered prime drug targets.
