    Research Abstract

    Currently there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, and although we have a number of treatments to manage the disease there is an urgent need for a further understanding of the disease process. This proposal will investigate the critical role that iron plays in the cause of neuronal cell death that results in Parkinson’s disease, and will investigate methods for regulating metal levels in the brain.
