Satellite Healthcare Announces 2008 Norman S. Coplon Extramural Grants : Grants Foster Next-Generation Kidney Disease Researchers
Date:9/22/2008

Satellite Healthcare, Inc., a leader in the field of kidney disease services and research, today announced the recipients of its 2008 Norman S. Coplon Extramural Grants. Recipients of these annual grants are young scientists at leading universities and medical centers in the United States and Canada who are pursuing innovative kidney disease research projects.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (Business Wire EON) September 22, 2008 -- These grants, named for Dr. Norman S. Coplon, the founder of Satellite Healthcare, are directed at young researchers in the relatively early stages of their careers. "These grants can be seen as seed money for talented young scientists who are building their reputations doing basic and clinical research in kidney disease," said Dr. John Moran, Senior Vice President of Clinical Affairs for Satellite Healthcare and WellBound. "We want to motivate and help the best and brightest of young researchers to devote their time and energy to studying kidney disease, which affects 26 million Americans with another 20 million at risk of developing the disease."

"Funding for medical research in the US is at an all-time low, and young researchers are leaving at an alarming rate because the future is so discouraging," said Dr. William Mitch, Gordon A. Cain, Professor of Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and chair of the Satellite Research Scientific Advisory Board and grant selection committee. "Through these generous grants, Satellite is not only supporting innovation and new treatments but also is helping people remain in research, and that's our future. You can't overstate how important these grants are."

Gabriela Garcia, M.D. Baylor College of Medicine

"Arrest of Kidney Disease Progression by A2A Adenosine Receptor Activation"

Grant proposals submitted to Satellite Research, a division of Satellite Healthcare, are reviewed and approved by the independent Satellite Scientific Advisory Board.

The Coplon Grants allow for a maximum of $50,000 per year for a maximum of three years for each recipient.
