    Thanks to a new three-year, $2.27 million grant from the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Dr. John Elrod and colleagues are poised to gain novel insight into biological mechanisms that may be driving or worsening neurodegeneration. The researchers will investigate potential mechanisms using mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease and a systems biology approach. The work could help identify new drug targets and therapeutic opportunities for Alzheimer’s disease.

    A White Coat and Many Shades of Meaning for the Physician Assistant Class of 2022
