Deborah Cabin received her PhD in physiology from Johns Hopkins University in 1996. She has worked in research labs across America investigating genetic diseases and now is a professor in structural and functional neuroscience at the University of Montana. Her interest in Parkinson’s disease is a result of the complexity and mystery presents to researchers. Since 2006 Deborah has made truly remarkable discoveries regarding the causes of the disease, focusing in particular on a protein which is suspected to contribute significantly to the development of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Her research aims to identify the normal role of this protein, the mechanisms by which it leads to diseases, and to provide a progressive mouse model to widen the scope of PD research.
