Our Center

The Center for Neurogenetics looks to examine the molecular basis of rare lysosomal diseases. We will use this research to better understand neurodegeneration, identify molecular targets, and develop therapies for both rare and common neurodegenerative diseases – including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
