CMU-UBC Team Wins Challenge To Advance Parkinson’s Disease Research
Familial Parkinson's disease affects at least 500,000 Americans, but a team of Carnegie Mellon University and University of British Columbia researchers have found a potential target for a treatment. "Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) is the most common genetic cause of Parkinson's disease, and the specific domain we were targeting had no known small molecule or natural inhibitors," said Ben Koby, a graduate student in Carnegie Mellon's  Department of Chemistry.

Tailoring chemical bonds
Solids can exist in two structurally very different phases: the crystal phase and the glass phase. While the short-range order of the atoms in both phases is generally very similar, only the atoms of the crystal have a long-range order. The similarity of the short-range order is attributed to the similarity of the chemical bonding between the atoms in both phases.
