Dr. Srivatsan receives
prestigious NIH grant
Dr. Malathi Srivatsan,
Molecular Biology, has received a grant totaling nearly $200,000
from the prestigious National Institute of Health to study the
effects of nicotine on developing nervous systems. Dr. Srivatsan
will test the hypothesis that chronic exposure to nicotine retards
development of nervous system among new born rat pups due to altered
influx of calcium through the calcium permeable nicotinic receptors.
Results from these experiments will begin to reveal the mechanism of
nicotine’s action on survival and growth of nerve cells.
