Lysosomal transport deficiencies in Parkinson’s disease
Dinstinguished Lecture by Prof. Peter Vangheluwe, KU Leuven
Prof. Dr. Peter Vangheluwe’s research focuses on lysosomal transport systems to understand the role of lysosomal dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease. He’s appointed as Associate Professor at KU Leuven in Belgium, and is head of the Laboratory of Cellular Transport Systems. Using biochemical and molecular cell biology approaches, he characterizes new P-type transport ATPases that regulate ion homeostasis and lipid distribution in the cell.
