Analyzing Parkinson's Disease
Leo Pallanck is associate professor of Genome Sciences. Dr. Pallanck's laboratory uses genetic and molecular approaches to elucidate mechanisms of synapse formation and function and to identify genetic pathways leading to pathology in heritable forms of neurodegenerative disorders. They study genes involved in Parkinson’s disease and the pediatric neurodegerative disorder, Niemann Pick Type C disease.
