Alzheimer’s researchers use physics techniques to investigate iron storage in the brain

Exactly how Alzheimer’s disease develops is not well understood, but an imbalance of iron in the brain might just play a role. Martina Huber of the Leiden Institute of Physics studied iron storage in the brain and managed to combine two techniques to gain more insight. “To achieve this, we had to bring together expertise from different fields and I am proud that we succeeded,” Huber says.
