Project description

We will identify blood and brain levels of trehalose associated with efficacy in an alpha-synuclein model of PD and define dosing strategies to translate these levels to non-human primates. This administration strategy will then be used to assess efficacy of trehalose in an alpha-synuclein-based non-human primate model of PD.
