Zoya Leonenko developing new strategies to prevent and cure Alzheimer's disease

CBB Member Zoya Leonenko, Biology, and Physics and Astronomy, is looking to support drug development that blocks toxic plaques found in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease.

Leonenko says that a lack of understanding of Alzheimer's at the molecular level is one of the biggest obstacles to finding a cure. To address this, she is using advanced biphysics and nanotechnology methods in hopes of developing preventive strategies using molecules that work at the single molecular level.
