LRRK2 inhibitors are expected to be useful for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.
The objective of this biomarker program is the development of fluorine labelled, LRRK2 specific, CNS penetrating compounds that will be used to visualize the disease progression in animal Parkinson’s models.
Origenis receives a two-years-grant from the Leading-Edge Cluster program “m4 – Personalized Medicine and Targeted Therapies”.
