Brief description By the time symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) appear, 60-70% of the cells in a crucial part of the brain called the substantia nigra have been destroyed and within a few years of diagnosis, most of the remaining cells have died. This project investigates the causes of this cell loss and a how a new class of compounds could interrupts the process. Success in achieving the aims of this proposal will add to our knowledge of the causes of neuronal death in PD
