NIH $1.25M Grant Supports Work Into Nerve Cell Loss in ALS

A Temple University research team received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant totaling $1.25 million to explore the molecular underpinnings of neuronal degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other diseases. With this five-year grant, the team led by Gareth Thomas, PhD, an associate professor of neural sciences at the university’s Lewis Katz School of Medicine, will search for a common mechanism that might explain why axons — the long, threadlike parts of neurons…
