Dr. Baojin Ding has secured nearly $400,000 in funding from the National Institutes of Health for his project tited "Determining the Pathogenesis of DYT1 Dystonia in Reprogrammed Human Neurons."
Dystonia is a common movement disorder characterized by uncontrolled muscle contractions. Currently, there is no specific therapy available due to unclear disease mechanisms. By using patient-derived neurons, Dr. Ding's project aims to decipher the pathogenesis of this disoder and to seek novel molecular targets for theraputic interventions.
