First Independent R01!

We are excited to announce we have been awarded our first independent R01 grant to study “Somatic repeat expansions as a therapeutic target for trinucleotide repeat disorders!”

Thank you to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the NIH for the recognition and support. Most importantly, a big thanks to everyone that helped us get to this point: Postdocs, techs and student interns, current and past; Mentors and collaborators that have provided guidance and encouragement along the way; Patient foundations HDSA, FARA, HDF, NAF for supporting the lab with career development awards and seed grants. It is because of them that we were able to generate the preliminary data necessary to make a strong grant application.
