Our lab is dedicated to test and discover chemicals found in traditional remedies to prevent, slow down and even reverse the onset of protein fibril formation characteristic of Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease. We hypothesis that protein misfolding and aggregation can produce an aggregosome cascade that leads to comorbidity in other neurodegenerative disorders.
