I am investigating the role of alpha-synuclein in the pathogenesis of alpha-synucleinopathies such as Parkinson's disease (PD). Current work involves the differentiation of neurons from human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells derived from healthy individuals and PD patients. I am examining the synaptic protein distribution and electrophysiological properties of neurons belonging to distinct brain regions affected in PD: the cortex and the midbrain.
