About the Lab

The Yassine lab specializes in how changes in lipid metabolism and nutrition affect the brain and risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The lab has a specific interest in studying how carrying the APOE4 allele, strongest genetic risk factors for developing AD, and diabetes affect brain lipid metabolism and the response to the diet. Our approach combines basic science, clinical trials and brain imaging studies.
