Parkinson’s disease: Understanding changes in the brain and testing novel drugs

18 November 2019

Team:

Dr Audrey Mercer and Dr Andy Constanti

Project (PO3): Objective Output Outcome

The aim of this project is to study the aetiology of non-motor symptoms in the brains of early stage Parkinson’s disease models and to test novel drugs that may potentially slow down the progression of the disease.
