Sonia Fernandez at the UCSB Current featured an interesting article on the research of Dr. Juliana Acoste-Uribe and Dr. Ken Kosik and their efforts to study neurodegenerative diseases in Colombia. Specifically, the research investigates a genetic mutations that results in early-onset Alzheimer's Disease and why this mutation is so prevalent in a single, rural area.  

Some of this research led to one of the first UCSB Data Science capstone projects for undergraduate data scientists. Members of the Central Coast Data Science Partnership will be familiar with the work.
