Science Exploration Series: Cracking the Brain's Mysteries: Novel strategies to cure neurodegenerative diseases

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall

Kevin Vaughan, associate professor of biology

Rare neurological diseases represent a unique challenge for scientists because neurons are notoriously difficult to study, and our understanding of basic neurobiology is incomplete. Using Niemann Pick Type C (NPC) disease as an example, universal mechanisms of neuronal loss can be revealed that suggest fundamentally-new strategies to curing disease.  These new insights provide hope for a panel of lysosomal storage diseases that lack an effective therapy or cure.
