Honors & Awards
- Dana Foundation, The David Mahoney Neuroimaging Program (co-PI)
Protective mechanisms of B cell autoreactive for the NMDA receptor: saving synapses following stroke (2016-2019)
- Big D Tackling Alzheimers Award (co-PI)
This study, funded by our local non-profit with donations from the annual BvB Powder Puff football game at the Cotton Bowl, will look at how an cardiovascular exercise regimen in patients with Alzheimers disease affects inflammation, the adaptive immune system, and quality of life. (2015-2015)
- R01 NIH/NIA R01AG049749 (co-I)
Exercise and Intensive Vascular Risk Reduction in Preventing Dementia multi-site clinical trial (2015-2021)
- R01 NIH/NINDS 5R01NS088555 (PI)
This proposed research will be the first to determine how the transfer of B cells as a post-stroke neurotherapeutic directly interacts with neurons to reduce injury and improve recovery, and how this therapy alters a previously unstudied post-stroke autoimmune response that contributes to neuronal protection. (2015-2020)
- American Heart Association National Scientist Development grant (PI)
The long-range objective of this grant is to elucidate B cell-mediated adaptive immune mechanisms during neurovascular protection following repetitive hypoxic preconditioning, and whether this protection is transferable with a B cell therapy in mice. (2014-2017)
