  • Sphingolipid and Alpha-synuclein Interactions

    Study Rationale:                   
    The contributions of multiple factors to Parkinson's disease (PD) are not fully understood.  However, it is clear that a normal cellular protein called alpha...

  • Supplement: Investigation of PINK1-dependent Phosphorylation of Rab GTPases

    Promising Outcomes of Original Grant:
    We were trying to understand how the PINK1 gene targets a set of proteins known as Rab GTPases through protein modification known as phosphorylation. The highlight...

  • Connexins as a New Therapeutic Target to Impede Spreading of Alpha-synuclein Pathology

    Study Rationale:
    Direct cellular connectivity has recently been implicated in the transfer of alpha-synuclein pathology associated with Parkinson’s disease. The gap junction proteins known as connexins...

  • Biomaterial-enhanced Cellular Brain Repair for Parkinson's Disease

    Study Rationale:
    One promising approach for the treatment of Parkinson’s is to replace the cells that have died in the disease through transplantation of healthy cells into the brain. However, this...

    Year Funded: 2019
  • Study in Finnish Population to Identify Therapies with Repurposing Potential for Parkinson’s Disease

    Study Rationale:
    Effective treatments for slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease are urgently needed. Searching for possible treatments among drugs already used for other indications is a...
