Development of restorative and neuroprotective treatment strategies for Parkinson´s disease

My research aims at developing new restorative and neuroprotective treatments for neurodegenerative diseases using cell transplantation and direct in vivo gene delivery. In collaboration with other members of the Parmar group, I'm involved in the development of stem cell based therapy for Parkinson's disease. In addition I explore rodent models of Parkinson´s disease to study the mechanisms underlying development of Parkinson-like neurodegeneration in rodents.
