Thimmappa S Anekonda
Department of Neurology
Oregon Health and Science University, USA
Dr. Anekonda received a doctoral degree from the University of California UC at Berkeley, postdoctoral training from the UC Davis and Alzheimer’s disease and retinopathy-related research experiences from the Oregon Health and Science University OHSU at Portland, Oregon. He currently serves as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at OHSU. The long term goal of his research is to define the neuroprotective mechanisms of herbal and non-herbal drugs at molecular and cellular levels and determine their treatment options for Alzheimers disease. The molecular pathways downstream of beta amyloid production are of particular interest: intracellular calcium, tau pathology, anti aging sirt1 and autophagy.
Neuroprotective mechanisms by herbal and non herbal drugs against Alzheimers disease pathology. Age related neurodegeneration, bioavailability of herbal non-herbal compounds; beta amyloid and tau pathology, autophagy pathway, mitochondrial functions, anti aging sirtuin and anti inflammatory pathways, mechanisms of calorie restriction CR and CR mimetics CRMs, in vitro and in vivo models of Alzheimers disease.
