Dr. Golde’s Files
Dr. Golde’s laboratory conduct’s disease oriented research with a specific, but not exclusive, focus on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson Disease (PD). Our basic road map for this research is to try and understand the disease, create models that mimic aspects of the disease process in a time course that is amenable to study, identify targets for intervention, and opportunistically develop and evaluate therapies that might alter the disease course. We are highly collaborative laboratory and believe in leveraging our infrastructure with respect to disease models, knowledge, and technologies to help others move their research forward.
Dr. Golde has created a collaboration and partnership with the Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration in an effort to recruit the brightest and best translational researchers to UF. Dr. Golde directs the sister center at UF- The Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases.
