Texas A&M Gains Research Funding to Study Post-Traumatic Epilepsy

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Oct 26, 2016

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is the leading cause of disability among U.S. military personnel and veterans. What’s more, 50% of people with TBI develop spontaneous seizures. If the seizures become recurrent then the condition qualifies as Post-Traumatic Epilepsy, PTE. Now thanks to a 3 year, $750,000 research grant from the Department of Defense and the Army, researchers at Texas A&M will conduct a study on TBI to uncover the molecular and epigenetic mechanism of PTE.

Anti-fungal research at New York's Stony Brook University earned $6 million in grants from the National Institute of Health.  Dr. Maurizio del Poeta’s breakthrough in attacking deadly fungus came from a recent research project that yielded an unexpected result that might lead to a vaccine.  He and his team were searching for a gene that would metabolize a fungal sphingolipid.  Instead, the gene he mutated caused mice that were exposed to it to become resistant to fungal infections.  In an article on the Stony Brook University’s news site, Dr. Poeta said , “We think that this discovery will open the road to a new vaccination strategy against fungi.”

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Aug 11, 2014

Part of a new $37.5 million life science grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has been made available to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles. The research funding will be shared with fellow science researchers at the University of Pennsylvania to build and test wireless implantable devices that can detect memory deficits caused by injury and try to restore normal function. The purpose of these devices is to help improve brain function for service members, veterans and others after traumatic brain injury or disease.
