Two new brain studies hit science labs at UTSC

Medical researchers at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) have been working around the clock to get brains ticking. Two new studies hit the science labs early last week.

Prof. Kagan Kerman and chemistry student Anthony Veloso applied a new approach to examine amyloid plaque formation in Alzheimer’s disease. Joining the chemistry board is author of Neuron and new chemistry professor at UTSC Xiao-an Zhang, who examines how zinc governs the formation of memories in the brain.
