A Jupiter chemist just landed a $11 million grant for brain disease research... he's looking into COVID-19 drugs, too
from Palm Beach Post
A scientist at Scripps Research Institute studying brain diseases and the novel coronavirus has received a hefty grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The organization, part of the National Institutes of Health, awarded $11 million to Matthew Disney, a Scripps chemistry professor who leads a 25-person lab in Jupiter. Disney’s research centers on RNA, the single-stranded genetic material involved in cell regulation and other actions, and its role in diseases that include muscular dystrophy, ALS and Alzheimer’s.
