project about ad disease claim and evidence
This is a group project, meaning that each member of the group should contribute information, ideas, and
writing. You will be presenting an argument making the case for a particular direction that should be taken
in the AD therapy development. For example: should we focus on developing antibodies or small molecule
drugs against A
oligomers? Or perhaps we should target the hyper-phosphorylation of tau? Or tau
aggregation? Or perhaps the prion-like properties of tau? Or maybe we should try to identify an infectious
agent that triggers Alzheimerâ€™s disease (a more recent, uncertain development in the filed of AD)? It is up
to the group to decide. Before you make your choice, do your homework: read the articles posted on
Canvas (and any other articles from reliable sources). Feel free to â€œdivide and conquerâ€: assign each
member of your group one possible direction and have each member make a pitch on the direction they
investigated. Discuss and decide on the direction you think is best to follow (there is probably no â€œwrongâ€
choice). Your argument should be well-supported by evidence and contain ideas of further investigations.
Your argument should contain the following parts (up to 5 pages, double-spaced):
1. Your claim: what should be the focus of the AD treatments in the future?
2. What is the evidence that supports this claim? There should also be a clear explanation of why this
evidence supports your claim. Cite your sources (see papers that we read in class for examples of in-text
citation of sources)
3. Counter-argument: briefly, what are the arguments against your ideas? What other directions are
4. Rebuttal: why, nevertheless, you think that your direction is the most promising/productive?
5. How will you pursue this direction? Outline at least three lines of investigation. No need to go into the
nitty-gritty details of experimental design, but outline the general features. For example: One possibility is
to conduct as high-throughput screening of small molecule drugs that will do X in neurons over-expressing
6. Potential pitfalls (limitations) of your approach
7. Summary (one paragraph): why is this line of research important?
8. References: what sources did you use to help shape your ideas?
