Two Stowers Investigators Secure Pilot Project Grants from KU

Investigators Jennifer Gerton, PhD, and Kausik Si, PhD, both received one-year pilot project grant funding through the University of Kansas (KU). Si is using his funds from the KU Alzheimer’s Disease Center to examine the role of a neuronal RNA binding protein and its role as a biochemical substrate of long-term memory. Gerton received funds from the KU Cancer Center Biology Research Program. She is using her grant funding to investigate whether centromere sequence instability in cancers could result in aneuploidy.
