LESLIE THOMPSON NABS NIH GRANT TO START STEM CELL RESEARCH TRAINING PROGRAM
Sue & Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center researcher Leslie Thompson, one of the world’s leading Huntington’s disease investigators, has received a 5-year, $735,000 grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to establish a training program in stem cell translational medicine for neurological disorders. The program’s objective is to train a new generation of scientists in the translational application of stem cell biology to neuroscience. This proposed training program will be the first on campus specifically focused on three integrated areas: stem cells, neuroscience and translation to the clinic.
