Charles Glabe, Ph.D.

Dr. Glabe’s research program is focused on amyloid structure and aggregation, in particular beta-amyloid, which is the key pathogenic hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Glabe made the seminal discovery that protein components of amyloid share a common structure that is recognized by a conformation-specific antibody. This discovery indicates that amyloids likely share a common primary mechanism of pathogenesis in disease.
