Professor Claude M. Wischik, co-founder and Executive Chairman of TauRx Therapeutics, along with colleagues at the University of Aberdeen, has devoted nearly 30 years to investigating the structure and role of tau tangles in the development of Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases. He is the scientist who discovered that the neurofibrillary tangles seen in Alzheimer’s disease are made of sub-units of the tau protein and he and his team have published extensively in the field.
