Research Interests

Dr. Greenamyre is interested in defining mechanisms of neurodegeneration in order to identify new targets for development of neuroprotective (‘disease-modifying’) therapeutic strategies. Most of our current work is on Parkinson’s disease (PD), and we are particularly interested in mitochondrial abnormalities and their roles in causing oxidative damage, protein aggregation and neurodegeneration.
