This chapter addresses Goal 3 by discussing the genetic relationship between Alzheimer's disease and Down Syndrome.
Neurodegenerative diseases (NDD) such as Alzheimer's (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) are distinct clinical entities; however, the aggregation of key neuronal proteins, presumably leading to neuronal demise appears to represent a common mechanism. It has become evident that advanced glycation end products (AGEs) trigger the accumulation of such modified proteins, which eventually contributes to the pathological aspect of NDDs. Increased levels of AGEs are found in amyloid plaques in AD brains and in both advanced and early PD (incidental Lewy body disease). The molecular mechanisms by which AGE dependent modifications may modulate the susceptibility towards NDDs, however, remain enigmatic and it is unclear whether AGEs may serve as biomarker of NDD. This study detected differential associations between NDD, sex and oxidative stress markers.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 10 by explaining how individuals with diabetes who are of lower socioeconomic status are more likely to have poorer diabetes-related outcomes. Digital health advancements provide unique opportunities to reduce health inequities for this high-risk group.

The Atlas of Sustainable Development Goals 2020 presents interactive storytelling and data visualizations about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It highlights trends for selected targets within each goal and introduces concepts about how some SDGs are measured. Where data is available, it also highlights the emerging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the SDGs.

As the world of research moves towards open access, publishers have a further task – ensuring the knowledge gap between the Global North and Global South continues to close. Contributing to SDGs 10 and 17, this paper provides an evidence base supporting practical recommendations towards the equitable and inclusive shift towards open access

This book chapter addresses SDGs 15, 12, and 11 by discussing the conservation of terrestrial, freshwater, and coastal/marine ecosystems, and how to identify global percent protection goals.
This chapter addresses SDG10 and SDG16 by conceptualizing stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination in the context of people using them as tools to manage social opportunities and threats, enhancing understanding of how and why stereotypes develop.
This book chapter advances SDGs 15 and 11 by looking at how island biogeography arose in the past and how it is now changing in the Anthropocene. Biogeography is determined by three processes: immigration, evolution, and extinction and in the Anthropocene, human impacts are increasingly more important to island biogeography.
