West Lab

The “other” West lab focuses on identifying critical pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurological diseases like Parkinson’s disease with the goal of developing new therapeutics to block disease progression. The West lab is housed in the brand-new Duke Center for Neurodegeneration and Neurotherapeutics and works with clinicians in the discovery of biomarkers for disease progression and therapeutic responses together with basic neuroscientists in defining pathways in neurons and immune cells that drive disease.
