Dr. Adam Bindas' Paper is Published
Previous graduate student, Dr. Adam Bindas, successfully published his article “Aggregation of alpha-synuclein in enteric neurons does not impact function in vitro” in Scientific Reports. Co-authored by current graduate student, Kyla Nichols, the article investigates the behavior of enteric neurons in response to the Parkinson’s disease marker, preformed fibrils. The article then delves deeper into how this behavior can be influenced by molecules found in the gut microbiome.
