Following is a list of some of the medical research grants awarded to scientists in the area.

WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

Scientists * Dr. Gregory Mark Lanza, professor of science and practice of medicine; and Samuel Achilefu, professor of radiology and of biochemistry and molecular biophysicsGrant * $11 million, National Cancer InstituteProject * One of the major goals of this proposal is to develop new drugs made of tiny light-absorbing molecules. Upon absorption of light, the drug will produce toxic radicals inside cancer cells.

Scientists * Dr. Beau Ances, associate professor of neurology

Grant * $3 million, National Institute of Nursing Research

Project * This funding will support research to study the effects of exercise training on brain health in older HIV positive individuals.

Scientists * Dr. Maurizio Corbetta, professor of neurology

Grant * $2.7 million, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Project * The goal of this project is to use advanced brain scanning techniques to understand how a stroke changes the communication between brain areas, and how those changes in turn relate to the behavioral problems.

Scientists * Dr. Daniel S. Ory, professor of cardiology and professor of medicine and of cell biology and physiology.

Grant * $2.5 million, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Project * Niemann-Pick C (NPC) disease is a fatal, neurodegenerative disorder, for which there are no FDA-approved therapies. Children affected by this disorder show symptoms in early childhood, and usually die in adolescence. This project will test the effectiveness of a new class of drugs, known as histone deacetylase inhibitors.

Scientist * Dr. Andrey S. Shaw, professor of immunology

Grant * $2.3 million, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

Project * We propose to use state-of-the-art imaging methods to understand how injury to cells in the kidney by toxins or drugs results in a response by the cell that allows blood proteins to leak into the urine.

Scientist * Scott Frey, associate director of the Rehabilitation and Participation Science PhD Program, professor of occupational therapy and neurology

Grant * $2. …
