A rare feat: 2 scientists at Salk score NIH New Innovator Awards
Date:9/13/2012

get the large number of diseases associated with membrane signaling defects.

Axel Nimmerjahn, an assistant professor in the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center and holder of the Richard Allan Barry Developmental Chair, has created and continues to develop novel research tools for dissection of glial cell function in the intact healthy and diseased brain. The New Innovator award will support his research into microglia, the resident immune cells in the brain. Microglia are involved in essentially all brain pathologies and hence better understanding of their signaling mechanisms may lead to new or improved disease prevention and treatment strategies. Nimmerjahn aims to develop novel optical and genetic tools for in vivo dissection of microglia function in superficial and deep regions of the brain. This will provide new fundamental insight into these cell's beneficial and detrimental roles in health and disease.

Established in 2007, The NIH Director's New Innovator Award addresses two important goals: stimulating highly innovative research and supporting promising new investigators. The program supports exceptionally creative new investigators who propose highly innovative projects that have the potential for unusually high impact.
