Scheduled Hours40Position SummaryAlzheimerâ™s disease (AD) is a highly heterogeneous multifactorial disease. Genetic influences on AD are strong as shown by several pathogenic genes and over 50 AD loci identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS). There are also clear sex differences in AD risk and progression. Women are at a higher risk of developing AD and present faster progression. A recent GTEx study also highlights sex differences in the genetic regulation of gene expression. Despite these established sex differences, sex-specific molecular findings in AD are still limited. The objective of our team is to generate detailed sex-specific multi-tissue molecular profiles
