Welcome to the Zhang Lab

Our research programs endeavor to:

  • Understand the molecular mechanisms of Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease.

  • Identify potential biomarkers to assist in the diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of disease progression for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease using proteomic and immune-affinity based assays.

  • Uncover the relationship between environmental toxicants and neurodegenerative diseases.
