Research

  • The main focus of my research is to study the function of some GPCRs that
    are mainly affected in PD and the progressive loss of nigrostriatal
    dopaminergic neurons in PD can be influenced by therapeutic approaches that
    target those GPCRs. A battery of complementary techniques which include
    brain slice electrophysiology and electrochemistry, pharmacology,
    biochemistry, histochemistry and behavioral testing in different genetic and
    toxic animal models for PD have been used to address all the issues raised
    in the projects.
