  • Research Grant, 2020
    RT-QuIC Assay for Alpha-synuclein in Incidental Lewy Body Disease

    Study Rationale:
    In Parkinson's, the alpha-synuclein protein misfolds and aggregates into clumps, called Lewy bodies. When Lewy bodies are found in people without Parkinson’s, it can be diagnosed as...

  • Research Grant, 2020
    Assessing Target Engagement for Terazosin

    Study Rationale:    
    Patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) do not produce enough of a compound called ATP. If a person does not make enough ATP, the cells in the body can die. This is very important...

  • Research Grant Supplement, 2020
    LIMP-2 as a Scaffolding Protein to Characterize PD-Associated GCase Variants

    Promising Outcomes of Original Grant:
    Our original grant focused on determining the structure of the complex formed by the Parkinson’s-associated protein beta-gluccocerebrosidase (GCase) and its...

  • Therapeutic Pipeline Program, 2020
    Using Vestibular Stimulation to Improve Neurovascular Status in Parkinson’s Disease

    Study Rationale:    
    Caloric vestibular stimulation activates the vestibular system, a sensory network with pathways spreading throughout the brain. The vestibular system is responsible for providing...

  • Research Grant Supplement, 2020
    Measuring LRRK2-Mediated Rab Protein in Parkinson’s Disease

    Study Rationale: 
    The discovery of LRRK2 (Leucine rich repeat kinase 2) recently as a gene that causes Parkinson’s disease has provided considerable insights into the development of both familial and...

  • Research Grant Supplement, 2020
    Discovery of Selective PET Imaging Agents for Tauopathies and Alpha-Synuclein

    Study Rationale:    
    The development of alpha-synuclein and tau imaging agents will be valuable for people with Parkinson’s disease and Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD), as deposits of these proteins...
