Neurodegenerative Disorders

Research within The Neurological Disorders Center aims to elucidate the mechanisms underlying a number of neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinsons' and Alzheimers, and using this knowledge as a base to develop systems to improve clinical prognoses, and to enable future research within the field. Much of this work incorporates the search for novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers to enable earlier, more accurate detection of disease.
