Research in the Tayebi laboratory includes pharmacodynamics related to brain disorders. The Tayebi lab laid the groundwork for the development of unique and patented biologics effective in binding to soluble oligomeric species derived from a number of misfolded proteins, including Aβ, tau, prion, BACE, APP, α-synuclein and so on.
