About This Activity

Neurodegenerative diseases are usually late onset diseases, characterized by cognitive and motor impairment and/or dysfunction. Common diseases include Parkinson’s disease (PD), Huntington’s disease (HD), and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). These diseases activate similar biological pathways that cause widespread oxidative damage, protein aggregate formation, and chronic pro-inflammatory responses. Despite these similarities, there is a plethora of different techniques to learn about diseased cellular states. Students will explore how molecular signaling pathways can be exploited to detect cellular states in both wet and dry labs. Please note: A strong background in molecular biology is highly recommended.
