Dr. Y. Hwan Kim, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, leads multiple projects related to Parkinson’s Disease. Dr. Kim is the principal investigator of the National Institute of Health research grant, which supports the project of validating novel potential therapeutic targets for curing PD.
Anurupa published her first author paper titled, 'A Novel NOX Inhibitor Treatment Attenuates Parkinson’s Disease-Related Pathology in Mouse Models'. Wishing her plenty of reads and citations!!
Gabriela has been accepted into the GSAS summer research program at the prestigious Columbia University, NYC! We wish her luck!
Congratulation to Kamil Cameron and Areli Martinez on their acceptance into the Delaware Neuroscience program and INBRE summer internship respectively.
We are working assessing the role of senescence markers and senolytics as a potential treatment plan for PD using Parkinsonian mice models.
Karina got accepted to the PhD program at University of Michigan. She hopes to do some intensive and groundbreaking research in the field of Neurogenetics! We wish her all the best and success in her future endeavors!!
Kamil Cameron presents her work on screening of potential therapeutics for Parkinson's Disease treatment at the annual Del State research day, 2022
Areli Martinez presents her research on during the annual research day at Delaware State University.
Elena Z Rangel presented at the DSU Research Day. Her poster was,' The combination of blue light and Infrared effectively terminate bacterial growth.'
A novel compound by AptaBio therapeutics has been shown be a potent NOX inhibitor which also decreases the detrimental toxic rise of oxidative stress in cells. This compound helps in decreasing cytotoxicity and increasing cell viability in invitro assays. Further in vivo studies also show the neuroprotective effects of C-6.
SENP1 is a potential therapeutic target for halting PD pathology. There is an upregulation of SENP1 with PFF induced toxicity.
A SUMO conjugating protein UBc9 can have a protective effect on dopaminergic cells.
