NYSCF – Druckenmiller Fellow Alumnus Breaks New Ground in Parkinson’s

NYSCF – Druckenmiller Fellow Alumnus Dr. Ian Martin published his latest research on a protein that mediates a gene connected to the neurodegenerative effects seen in Parkinson’s disease.

The researchers identified a key protein that links the LRRK2 mutation, a gene mutation commonly seen in sporadic and familial Parkinson’s disease, and neurodegeneration in fly and human neuron models, establishing a novel mechanism of Parkinson’s disease manifestation.
