Parkinson Disease Project

In October 2015, driven by Prof. Ehud Gazit, who is the chief scientist from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space of Israel, the outstanding research team from Tsinghua University, China, led by Prof. Yan-Mei Li entered into collaboration with the excellent research team from Tel Aviv University, Israel, led by Prof. Daniel Segal to develop new oral drugs so as to prevent or cure the Parkinson Disease. The two teams integrate the resources of drug discovery, drug synthesis and pharmacological study from each side together and work together to promote the drugs study based on the potentials that naphthoquinone derivatives hold the capacity to prevent or cure the Parkinson Disease (Patents of Prof. Daniel Segal: US Patent US20110224184;China Patent 102186464 B). The project promotes the study and development of anti-Parkinson Disease drugs and the minister of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space of Israel has given a thumbs-up to the project when he came to visit the XIN Center.
