PINBOARD SUMMARY

I apply cutting-edge single-molecule fluorescence to study the mechanism of protein aggregation.

The aggregation of alpha-synuclein protein from soluble monomer into solid amyloid fibrils in the brain is associated with a range of devastating neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s dis...
