Pathogenesis of the Virome in Parkinson’s disease

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Aim: Characterize the entire Virome in the putamen, amygdala, cortex and CSF of PD patients and control subjects using ViroFind.
We will identify any DNA or RNA virus known to infect humans in fresh frozen samples at a location classically affected in PD brains, as well as in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using ViroFind. We will analyze the entire viral genome, characterize viral variants and, potentially, discover novel viruses. Control brain and CSF samples will be from age-matched subjects
