Research becomes a reality for Rett syndrome through new funding
Date:10/1/2010

ute of Singapore, the National University of Singapore
  • "MHC Class I molecules and receptors as therapy for Rett Syndrome?", Carla J. Shatz, PhD, Stanford University
  • "MeCP2 in Cognitive Function in the Adult Nervous System", David J. Sweatt, PhD, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • "The study of Rett syndrome with Mecp2 T158A knockin mice", Zhaolan Zhou, PhD, University of Pennsylvania

    Dr. Huda Zoghbi whose lab discovered the gene responsible for Rett syndrome commented on the caliber of this year's awardees saying, "I am thrilled to learn that Dr. Carla Shatz will examine visual system plasticity in a mouse model of Rett syndrome. It is important to test this hypothesis given the role of MHC Class I proteins in activity-dependent plasticity during critical developmental periods. Beyond testing this hypothesis, bringing Carla into the Rett field is a huge boost to the neurobiological studies on this disorder." Dr. Shatz was formerly President of the prestigious Society for Neuroscience. This award is made in honor of Grace Reddington.

    IRSF also awarded several post-doctoral fellowship training awards that will provide support for outstanding young investigators for the following important scientific projects:

    • Elena Amendola, PhD, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, "Model of CDKL5 Rett syndrome" Supported in partnership with the International Foundation for CDKL5 Research
    • Jing Han, PhD, Baylor College of Medicine, "Investigating the Role of the Neuroendocrine-Hypothalamic System in Rett Syndrome"
    • Keerthi Krishnan, PhD, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, "Role of MeCP2 in the maturation of neocortical GABA interneurons and critical period of plasticity"
    • Miriam Kron, PhD, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, "Synaptic mechanisms of apnea in Rett syndrome"

    Dr. Katheryn Elibri-Frame President of the newly launched International Foundation for CDKL5 Research (IFCR) commented
