MSU becoming center of excellence for Parkinson's research
Date:10/14/2009

n whole organisms" Lipton said. "Having such a varied skill set allows us to attack research problems at many different levels. If we still can't solve a problem, we will find people who can and add them to our team."

Sortwell's research examines how one of the more promising Parkinson's therapies, deep brain stimulation, relieves symptoms and how the procedure may slow the progress of the disease.

Other projects that are part of the center will examine how:

  • The brain's anatomy changes as the disease progresses and how certain drug therapies can reduce these changes and in turn reduce movement disorders;
  • Depression may exacerbate the progress of the disease;
  • How undifferentiated stem cells might be used to combat neurodegeneration.

Lipton, as the analytical core director, will coordinate neurochemical, protein and gene expression studies across all projects to determine whether common changes are evident across the multidisciplinary study.

A Morris K. Udall Center of Excellence is the most coveted award among national centers that conduct Parkinson's disease research. The announcement of the center was part of the College of Human Medicine's 2009 Gala celebration, which honored philanthropists Richard and Helen DeVos as "Pillars of Medicine" for their contributions to the health science community in Grand Rapids.
