Neuroplasticity in Parkinson's disease
Pathik Parekh


Pathik Parekh pursued his master’s degree from the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER) in India in 2017. Where he studied the role of autophagy in the neurotoxin-based animal model of Parkinson’s disease (PD). 

He is pursuing his Ph.D. from the University of Cagliari, Italy where his main goal is to investigate the neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory potential of natural products in the preclinical model of PD. 

As a part of his Ph.D. program, recently he joined the team of Prof. Véronique Sgambato at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences, Lyon to study behavioral disorders in the non-human primates which recapitulate symptoms of PD and to understand the brain structures involved behind the observed neurodegeneration in PD.
