Packard Center awards new research grant to study new pathways of protein homeostasis in ALS

The Packard Center has awarded a research grant to Jiou Wang, PhD for a project entitled: new pathways of protein homeostasis in ALS

The Packard Center is pleased to announce a grant to Jiou Wang, PhD of Johns Hopkins University to study new pathways of protein homeostasis in ALS.

Dr. Wang’s study is aimed at elucidating a new mechanism of sensing misfolded proteins and regulating their synthesis related to ALS. The outcome could have important implications for understanding protein homeostasis as a common theme of the disease. The findings will not only provide novel insights into the pathogenic mechanisms in ALS but also identify new therapeutic targets for this devastating disease.
