"New Molecular Drivers Of Parkinson’s Disease Uncovered"
Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have uncovered new molecular drivers of Parkinson’s disease using a sophisticated statistical technique called multiscale gene network analysis (MGNA) and were able to determine how these molecular drivers impact the functions of genes involved in the disease. The results may point to potential new treatments. “This study offers a novel approach to understanding the majority of cases of Parkinson’s,” said Bin Zhang, PhD, professor of genetics and genomic sciences at the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology. “The work opens up a new avenue for studying the disease,” said Zhenyu Yue, PhD, professor of neurology and neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
