Imaginal Discs as an early markers of Alzheimer`s progression

This project seeks to determine whether Alzheimer’s disease develops during the larval stage or only during the adult stage as a result of age.
Comparing normal larval imaginal discs to Alzheimer’s fly larval imaginal discs would give us an idea if deformity in imaginal discs is an early sign of possible Alzheimer’s detection and can act as an indicator for testing drug efficacy.
