Research and Scholarship

Grant Funding Received

  • NIH NINDS. RNA Gain of Function Pathogenesis in SCA10. To demonstrate that the sequestration of heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K plays a key role in the pathogenesis of SCA10 and to determine the relative contribution of this mechanism to the entire pathogenicity in SCA10, testing the hypothesis that the major pathogenic mechanism is an RNA gain-of-function causing functional loss of hnRNP K. Ashizawa (PI).
  • NIH NINR. Neuroimaging Biomarkers for Post-Operative Cognitive Decline in Older Adults. Randomized concurrent controlled clinical trial to quantitate and characterize neuroimaging biomarkers associated with cognitive decline in adults undergoing total knee replacement surgery. Price (PI).
