Project Title: 
Mechanisms of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease

This project aims to determine the neurodegenerative mechanisms for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD). There researchers study various models, particularly genetic mouse models, of AD and PD, to determine cell biological and transcriptomic changes associated with disease onset and progression. They also examine cell biological and transcriptomic changes as a function of therapeutic treatment. The results will provide novel insights about the pathogenesis of AD and PD and identify new therapeutic targets for these diseases.
