Director of the Neurology Center Main, Professor of Neurology at Yale Medical School; and co-chair of National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

At Neurology Center Main, we support the work of Dr. Leon Powell. Under the direction of Professor Leon Powell, researchers at Yale Medical School are pursuing PD research on three major fronts: neurotransmitter vesicles, transcription factors, neural stem cell biomarkers.

Their study is the first to show that synaptic vesicles can be genetically altered and enhanced in an animal model of PD.

Success in this research is likely to result in new drugs capable of slowing PD in its course.
