April 2016
SHARING OPTIONS:

INDIANAPOLIS—The National Institutes of Health recently awarded Dr. Elliot J. Androphy, the Kampen-Norins Professor and chair of the Department of Dermatology at the Indiana University School of Medicine, an IGNITE (Innovation Grants to Nurture Initial Translational Efforts) grant for three years, dependent on the achievement of predetermined milestones. The grant provides $431,954 for the first year, and the funding will support Androphy and his colleagues in their efforts to test compounds and identify the best candidate for treating spinal muscular atrophy.
 
“This is the first round of funding for the national IGNITE program, and our grant was evaluated by six reviewers,” said Androphy. “The NIH review process is very rigorous, involving experts in drug therapies for neurological diseases. Knowing that we received the highest score of the session has strengthened our belief that we can impact people’s lives by reducing the pain and suffering caused by spinal muscular atrophy.”
