Bateman’s laboratory focuses on the causes, diagnosis and future treatments of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We directly measure the pathology and pathophysiology of AD in humans using multiple techniques. Our group uses a wide variety of assays and techniques from the most basic applications, such as quantitative measurement of stable-isotope labeled peptides, to clinical translational studies in diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers for AD.

We’re growing!

The Bateman lab is currently looking for additional team members and has several exciting opportunities for qualified motivated candidates!

Sleeping pill reduces levels of Alzheimer’s proteins
Two doses of an FDA-approved sleeping pill reduced levels of Alzheimer’s proteins in a small study of healthy volunteers led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The study hints at the potential of sleep medications to slow or stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, although much more work needs to be done to confirm the viability of such an approach.
