Lucia Bossoni in Newsweek

Newsweek has published a story on Leiden Alzheimer research led by physicist Lucia Bossoni.

There have been indications for decades that there is a link between increased iron levels in the brain and Alzheimer’s disease. Bossoni and her colleagues have found this connection as well, and this time also make a distinction between different forms of iron. They have identified specific iron forms that increase in Alzheimer’s patients and published their results in Scientific Reports.

Newsweek has covered this research in an article.
