- Understand treatments for Parkinson's disease
Anumantha Kanthasamy, MS, MPhil, PhD
Clarence Hartley Covault Distinguished Professor, W.E Lloyd Chair in Neurotoxicology, Iowa State University
Dr. Kanthasamy’s lab has been at the forefront of unraveling the cell signaling mechanisms underlying how chronic environmental exposure to metals and neurotoxic pesticides contributes to mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, protein aggregation, neuroinflammation and apoptosis. This knowledge will advance the development of novel translational approaches for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. More information.
