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)
  • 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)
