UF Department of Neuroscience assistant professor, Paramita Chakrabarty, Ph. D., and her research team has reported their new findings in npj Parkinson’s Disease that an anti-inflammatory cytokine, Interleukin 10, has a profound detrimental effect in a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease. This study was co-authored by Samuel Cockey, an undergraduate…
Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and Genetics and Genomics Program and Evelyn F. McKnight Chair for Research on Cognitive Aging and Memory, Thomas Foster, Ph. D., drives research on partial microglial depletion. Findings reveal that this depletion is associated with impaired hippocampal synaptic and cognitive function in young and aged rats.

UF department of neuroscience associate professor, Eduardo Candelario-Jalil, Ph. D., explores the "impact of aging and comorbidities on ischemic stroke outcomes in preclinical animal models: A translational perspective" in an invited review article for a special issue of Experimental Neurology.
Professor of Neuroscience at UF, Malú Gámez Tansey, Ph. D., reviews LRRK2 as the missing link between inflammatory bowel disease and Parkinson's disease (PD). More specifically, this review article looked into the scientific studies associating inflammatory bowel disease with Parkinson's through the LRRK2 gene which is involved in inflammatory activity in the gut, blood and brain.
From UF Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease New preclinical research led by UF neuroscientists shows that tau proteins, considered a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease pathology, build up in brain cells of mice and continue to be cleared. The novel finding published in the journal Acta Neuropathologica indicates that…
