The Role of Hypertension in Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

Hello! My name is Sonali Shirali and I am a rising sophomore and a neuroscience major at the College of William and Mary. This summer I am conducting research on the role of hypertension and how it correlates with the rise and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease. Specifically, I will be looking into the pathway of the hormone Angiotensin II and how it might affect increasing blood pressure levels and influence Alzheimer’s Disease.
