CSU-Pueblo receives medical research grant

Colorado State University-Pueblo has received a $300,000 grant to study strokes and come up with new treatments to prevent brain damage.

The three-year grant from the National Institutes of Health was submitted by Dr. Jeff Smith, assistant professor of biology. "Besides having an opportunity to contribute to possible therapies for stroke patients, I am equally pleased that the funds will support our master's degree and undergraduate research students who we are training as the next generation of medical researchers," Smith said.

At CSU-Pueblo, undergraduate and graduate students do hands-on research as a key element of their educational experience.

"The grant will strengthen the research abilities of our institution and expose a large group of diverse students to biometrically relevant and important research," Smith added.

The research project is titled Modulation of Monocarboxylic Acid Transporter Kinetic Function for Stroke Therapy.
