[en] This project takes place in the field of research of Alzheimer's disease. One of the two major hallmarks of the dementia is the tau protein pathological aggregation and spreading in the brain. The present work aims at providing to the scientific community an in silico tool that would improve the understanding of these processes, by simulating their evolution over time, at the subject's level.
