Congressman Bill Owens Congratulates Clarkson University on $440K in Science Funding from NIH

Professor Silvana Andreescu

Congressman Bill Owens Congratulates Clarkson University on $440K in Science Funding from NIH Congressman Bill Owens announced $440,000 worth of funding from the NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke for a Clarkson University team, led by Chemical & Biomolecular Science Professor Silvana Andreescu. The team will develop a novel sensing technology for real-time monitoring of neurotransmitters. The technology will be used to study neurophysiological events in collaboration with neurophysiologists and medical doctors at Dartmouth Medical School.

"This is great news for Clarkson as well as the Village of Potsdam," Owens said. "This funding will allow Clarkson to continue the tremendous work for which the facility is known, and give us a greater understanding of diseases and the cures that prevent them. I would like to thank Dr. Silvana Andreescu and the rest of her department for their hard work in this field, as well as President Collins for the leadership and guidance he provides our community."

The funding will allow Professor Silvana Andreescu and her team to develop a novel sensing technology for real-time monitoring of the chemical substances (like lactate and glutamate) associated with neural signaling and function during oxygen deprivation in the brain. This technology will provide real-time assessment of the changes in these neurological factors and provide answers to fundamental questions related to the biochemical and cellular events involved in conditions of oxygen deprivation.
