Multispectral cellular-level retinal imaging for early detection of Alzheimer's disease

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), has been awarded a research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a novel technique to identify amyloid β-protein (Aβ) deposits in the retina as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

PSI will develop an optical imaging technique capable of non-invasively identifying specific chemical compounds in vivo in the retina with cellular-level resolution and without the use of contrast agents. PSI will validate the ability of this technique to identify early indications of AD.
