The University of Texas Medical Branch receives asthma project grant
The asthma and allergy research effort at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) recently received a boost with a five-year, $7.6 million project grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Titled "Signaling in Airway Inflammation," the grant renews NIAID funding which, for the past five years, has supported part of UTMB program focused on the role of respiratory viral infections and allergy in the development of asthma.
The researchers will pursue four inter-related projects centering on the biochemical processes that induce inflammation in cells lining human airways.
University of Texas Medical Branch is at 301 University Blvd., Galveston.
