Talk Description

In this presentation, we provide insight into our summer internship experience working with Parkinson's Disease (PD) researchers at the VA Portland Healthcare System. The presentation covers key background information on the disease and research techniques, and discusses a study conducted by Dr. Charles Meshul that tested and assessed an agonist of the Trk-B receptor as a prospective drug treatment for PD. Our talk culminates with a follow-up proposal to this study that aims to further investigate the role of the Trk-B receptor in PD pathology.
