CMRR a part of UMN new Biomedical Discovery District

Using the center’s high-field spectroscopy technologies and expertise, Gülin Öz, Ph.D., and colleagues James Cloyd, Pharm.D., and Paul Tuite, M.D., found that a natural product that’s available over the counter increases antioxidant levels in the brains of people who have Parkinson’s disease — which could eventually slow the course of the disease. Öz says the medication needs further study, “but it could be part of the solution and keep patients healthy a little longer.”
