ResearchPod ft Prof Kazushige Yokoyama

Prof Kazushige Yokoyama, State University of New York Geneseo College, investigates how peptide interactions lead to fibrillogenesis, the process in the brain responsible for some  symptoms of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Their research involves coating gold nanoparticles with peptides and using spectroscopic techniques to investigate how these peptides interactions lead to the onset of disease.
