Extracellular vesicles in the olfactory system

Principal Investigator: Dave Lin

Department of Biomedical Sciences
Sponsor: State University of New York (SUNY)
Title: Extracellular vesicles in the olfactory system
Project Amount: $10,000
Project Period: July 2020 to December 2021

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): 

Our proposal examines how extracellular vesicles influence olfactory regeneration. Our first goal will be to identify appropriate stages for analyzing mice. The second goal will be to confirm the suitability of our mutant strain for disrupting extracellular vesicle production.

The SUNY Research Seed Grant Program will provide the opportunity to keep this project going by funding the continued costs associated with mouse husbandry and the proposed experiments. This will enable a successful NIH grant submission.
