Media Outlet Highlights Lewis Katz School of Medicine Researchers Receiving Five-Year, $1.25 Million Grant from the NIH to Advance the Understanding of Neurodegenerative Disease

View All News

The fundamental biology underlying neuronal degeneration and neuropathy is not well understood. But, thanks to a five-year, $1.25 million grant from the National Institutes of Health National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University have an opportunity to investigate whether a unique molecular mechanism is common to declining neuronal function observed across multiple neurodegenerative diseases. Gareth Thomas, PhD, Associate Professor of Neural Sciences and Biomedical Education and Data Science at the Katz School of Medicine and Associate Professor at Shriners Hospitals Pediatric Research Center, is the principal investigator on the grant. Dr. Thomas will be working closely with collaborators George Smith, PhD, and Gianluca Gallo, PhD, Professors in the Department of Neural Sciences at the Katz School of Medicine and Shriners Hospitals Pediatric Research Center, and Linda van Aelst, PhD, Harold and Florence & Ethel McNeill Professor of Cancer Research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. highlighted the news.
