Adithya Gopinath, a Ph.D. candidate and graduate research assistant in the department of neuroscience, is the latest investigator to be featured in MBI Rising Stars, a video series highlighting up-and-coming neuroscience researchers at the University of Florida.

Gopinath works in the labs of Habibeh Khoshbouei, Pharm.D., Ph.D., and Wolfgang Streit, Ph.D., where his research explores the connection between the brain and the peripheral immune system in people with Parkinson’s disease with the goal of developing a blood test to diagnose and monitor the disease and evaluate whether treatments are working.

In 2020, Gopinath received the Bryan W. Robinson Memorial Endowment award and the Karen Toffler Charitable Trust Research and Leadership awards.
