Dopamine cell death in Parkinson’s disease: Why do specific cells in the substantia nigra die first?

Dr Kay Double (Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute) Dr Phillip Dickson and Professor Peter Dunkley (University of Newcastle)

In this research project we are mapping the distribution of the different types of TH in each of the four tiers of the substantia nigra to investigate whether particular forms of TH are associated with cell death in Parkinson’s disease.
