The primary goal of our research is to increase our understanding of the basic pathophysiological mechanisms underlying protein aggregation and neurodegeneration in synucleinopathies in order to pave the way for improved diagnostic tests and disease-modifying treatments for these illnesses.
Paul Kotzbauer, MD, PhD
The Kotzbauer lab is working to understand mechanisms of neurodegeneration underlying Parkinson’s disease and related disorders. Specific types of pathological neuronal inclusions that occur in Parkinson’s disease also occur in other neurodegenerative diseases, suggesting that common mechanisms of pathogenesis may be involved.
Joel S. Perlmutter, MD
Joel Perlmutter’s main research interests include neuroimaging, basal ganglia physiology and pharmacology, mechanisms of deep-brain stimulation, pathophysiology of dystonia, development of new agents to reduce nigrostriatal injury and electronic medical records systems.
