  1. F32EY032779 (Tracey A.C.S. Suter) May 1, 2021 - Apr 30, 2023
    Developing new strategies to promote axon myelination for vision restoration
    Role Description: Millions of Americans are suffering from irreversible blindness brought on by diseases like glaucoma and atypical optic neuritis. These forms of blindness are the result of retinal neuron death, and the demyelination and degeneration of their projecting axons, which are required to transfer light signals to the brain. Although we are beginning to robustly stimulate regeneration, this proposal focuses on promoting the myelination of regenerating retinal axons, which is an underappreciated necessity for achieving functional visual recovery.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  2. F31NS098643 (Tracey A.C.S. Suter) Jul 1, 2016 - May 1, 2019
    Understanding the Multifunctionality of TAG-1 in Motor Neuron Development
    Role Description: Spinal motor neuron circuits are critical for movement; a loss of this circuitry can have devastating consequences for patients. Current therapies for neurodevelopmental diseases, nervous system injury, and neurodegenerative diseases fail to meet the overwhelming public health demand. The research detailed in this proposal aims to determine the previously unknown functions of TAG-1 in regulating motor neuron development. Understanding the cellular and molecular mechanism that control normal development will inform future therapeutic interventions for re-establishing proper neuronal wiring and circuit formation.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. 5T32GM077995 (Edward Hawrot) Sep 1, 2013 - Sep 1, 2014
    Pre-doctoral Training Program in Trans-Disciplinary Pharmacological Sciences
    Role Description: The requested support will help establish and expand a faculty intensive predoctoral training program aimed at preparing the next generation of researchers and teachers in the pharmacological sciences. Following intensive course-based instruction, the trainees will become immersed in basic biomedical research projects in areas fundamental to the advancement of the pharmacological sciences, and to improved therapeutics.
    Role: Student Investigator
  4. T32EY007145 (D'AMORE, PATRICIA ANN) Feb 1, 1997 - May 31, 2022
    Training Program in the Molecular Bases of Eye Disease
    Role: Research Fellow

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
