Prof. Ashe is a leading international researcher, who has made significant contributions to AD research. She made one of the first transgenic mouse models of AD (Tg2576, Swedish mutation), discovered abnormal forms of amyloid--protein (A) and tau protein that disrupt brain activity in the early stages of the disease, and is developing treatment strategies to prevent memory loss due to the disease.
