Dr. Kalle Gehring, a professor in McGill University’s Department of Biochemistry, has been awarded a Pilot Project Grant by the Parkinson Society of Canada (PSC) for his ongoing work that looks at the molecular and cellular processes that underlie neurological diseases like Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

“Given my lab’s expertise in structural studies of proteins and the expertise in PD of our collaborator, Montreal Neurological Institute’s Ted Fon, we are enthusiastic that this project will significantly advance our understanding of this devastating disease and provide molecular targets for future therapies,” said Dr. Gehring.
