The project is a collaboration with an industry partner. The project focuses on investigating neuronal health and mitochondrial biology in patient derived dopaminergic neurons derived from Parkinson’s disease patients. The project will utilize manipulation of specific gene targets in these patient cells with subsequent analysis of neuronal health and mitochondrial biology.
