Gallo Research Center announces new round of awards for $20m US Army-funded research program
Date:10/19/2013

The UCSF-affiliated Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center has issued a second round of grants under its U.S. Army-funded research program intended to accelerate the discovery and development of new medications to treat alcohol and substance abuse in the context of post-traumatic stress and combat injury.

The program, known as the Institute for Molecular Neuroscience (IMN), relies on the expertise of a team of national experts who are unaffiliated with grant applicants to conduct an independent peer-review process.

The second round of pilot research grants will support a broad range of projects to investigate potential new treatments for substance abuse, traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. The total funding for this round of awards is $1.25 million. Together with the $3.7 million awarded in round one, the IMN has to date awarded approximately $5 million in proof-of-principle grants.

The IMN Program represents an important new strategy for combating substance abuse and related post-traumatic stress or other combat injuries, said John A. De Luca, PhD, chairman of the board and president of the Gallo Center. These medical conditions are national security health issues. The IMN seeks to address these problems through its multidisciplinary, competitive national research program.

Grant recipients in this round of funding are:

Michael E. Charness

Boston VA Research Institute (Harvard)

$300,000
