My research interest focuses on investigating the role of metal ions in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using BV-2 and SH-SY5Y cell lines. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by cognitive decline and the accumulation of amyloid-beta plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Metal ions, such as copper, zinc, iron, and aluminium, have been implicated in AD pathology. Understanding the impact of metal ions on cellular processes in relevant cell models can provide valuable insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying AD
