Improving Remyelination for Spinal Cord Injury

Research Grant Recipient: Arthur E. Warrington, PhD

Award Value: $248,686

Research Focus: Nervous system regeneration

From the Investigator:

A natural human antibody designed to enhance brain and spinal cord remyelination is presently in clinical trial in patients with multiple sclerosis. Many studies support the concept that patients with spinal cord injury would also benefit from improved myelination.


Killing Cancer Cells by Activating the Cellular Intrinsic Nuclear Loss Program

Research Grant Recipient: Wenqian Hu, PhD

Award Value: $250,000

Research Focus: Leukemias

From the Investigator:

A major problem in leukemia treatment is the rise of drug-resistant mutations in the genome of cancer cells, which makes many well-designed cancer drugs ineffective over time. To solve this critical issue, here, we will develop a novel method of killing leukemia cells by inducing them to expel their nuclei.
