Dr. Sarat Chandra Yenisetti is an Associate Professor and Head of Drosophila Neurobiology Laboratory in Department of Zoology, Nagaland University (Central), Nagaland, India. He completed M.Sc. from Bangaluru University, India and was awarded a Ph.D. from Kuvempu University, India. Dr. Sarat obtained post-doctoral training in "modelling Parkinson’s disease using Drosophila” from Neurogenetics, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) of National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, USA and University of Regensburg, Germany. His laboratory, funded through multiple research grants from Department of Biotechnology (DBT), India, University of Grants Commission (UGC), India and Department of Science and Technology (DST), India, focuses on Drosophila approach to understand Parkinson's Disease associated neurodegeneration as well as identification of novel therapeutic targets which may help to reduce the burden of PD in human.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder results due to loss of dopamine producing brain cells. Knowledge relating to PD condition has been known since 5000BC, however no effective therapeutic strategies are available till today. Therefore it is important for neurobiologists to work further by taking advantage of modern scientific methods and develop appropriate therapeutic strategies. Efforts in this direction are worthy as they will reduce the burden of PD among elderly, who are already burdened with age related systemic degenerative processes. This book is a humble effort in that progressive direction. It has chapters covering multiple aspects relating to etiology, pathophysiology of PD, available and futuristic therapeutics strategies. Therefore it will be of interest to common man, biomedical researchers and clinicians. This is one small step in a direction "to reduce the burden of neurological disease."
