Won-Seok Choi, PhD is interested in understanding the mechanisms of neuron death induced in Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease by enviornmental toxicants. He has investigated signaling pathways triggered by various neurotoxins to define the link to the neurodegenerative disorders, and to discover therapeutic targets to treat and/or prevent them.
