Finding solutions to stop neurodegeneration

Our ambitious aim is to find a way to stop neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, where there are not yet effective disease-modifying therapies available. NeuroCure lab focuses on the potential major causes for neuronal death, protein aggregation, protein processing failures, oxidative stress and neuroinflammation that are common for features in several neurodegenerative diseases. Our long term focus has been prolyl oligopeptidase (PREP, POP) and its ligands that have shown disease-modifying effects on various models of neurodegenerative diseases.
