We’re highlighting women leading our neuro research efforts at the University of Florida. Next, we're highlighting Dr. Melissa Armstrong, the director of the Mangurian Clinical-Research Headquarters for Lewy Body Dementia at the Fixel Institute.
Dr. Shannon Chiu awarded five-year grant from NIA to investigate changes in LBD using diffusion-weighted MRI and task-based EEG.
The Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation supported grants for two Lewy body dementia pilot studies.
Dr. Melissa Armstrong co-authored new guidance published in the journal Neurology.
Grant will fund Dr. Bhavana Patel’s research into an interdisciplinary telemedicine model for patients with Lewy body dementia.
New brain imaging facility at Fixel Institute will expand clinical research efforts.
Congrats to Dr. Joshua Brown, recipient of a National Institute on Aging diversity grant supplement to collaborate with Dr. Melissa Armstrong.
Five investigators earn grants for pilot studies focused on Lewy body dementia.
UF neuroscientists investigated whether accumulations of tau and alpha synuclein can interact to accelerate the appearance of “mixed pathologies” in mouse models.
Research proposals can span the spectrum of basic, translational, clinical and health care outcomes and policy research, with particular attention given to novel approaches.
