Projects funded, Research progressing
Two Projects funded at Northwestern
|October 24, Board members of the Paul Ruby Foundation traveled to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where they heard presentations of grant proposals and updates from last years funded research. The first grant funded this year was to Dr. Jerilyn Logemann for her research on the development and validation of a screening process for swallowing disorders in Parkinsons patients. The second grant funded was to Dr. Rajeshar Awatramanis research on assessing the function of a dopamine neuron subtype that is vulnerable in Parkinsons disease. This year, the foundation raised $100,000 through Concert for a Cure, Sub-5 Century Challenge, and through Boy Scout Troop 37s ride to Niagara Falls. Over $500,000 has been raised to support research for Parkinsons disease. Previous funding has served as seed money for research programs that have received NIH funding, and with the help of this company, this years grant to Dr. Awatramani shows promise to receive NIH funding as well.The foundation has actively participated in the process of choosing grant recipients since working with Northwestern. Through our participation with Northwestern and the Snoring Mouthpiece Report, we are able to see the direct impact of the money donated to research which can improve the quality of life for those living with Parkinsons and help find a cure for Parkinsons disease|
