Indiana CTSI Receives $33M NIH Grant to Improve Health Statewide, with Public’s Participation
Indiana consistently lands near the bottom of the nation’s health ranking lists, with too many babies dying before their first birthday and too many people smoking and abusing drugs.
The Indiana CTSI is a statewide research partnership among Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame, represented by the institute’s three-color logo.
A statewide network of researchers and staff at Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame have been working together to reverse this poor state of health, and are now seeking the help of Indiana residents of all ages and backgrounds as their partners.

Purdue Study Finds Chemical-Weapon Antidote Shows Early Promise As Spinal Cord Injury Treatment
Indiana CTSI-supported research by Purdue University investigators has found that a Word War II-era chemical-weapon antidote shows early promise as a new treatment for spinal cord injuries.
Riyi Shi, a professor of neuroscience and biomedical engineering at Purdue, and Ran Tian, a graduate student at Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, discovered that the antidote, a drug called dimercaprol, is effective at suppressing a neurotoxin that worsens the pain and severity of spinal cord injuries.

Purdue, IU scientists design epigenetic ‘key’ to editing neural stem cells
Scientists at Purdue University and Indiana University School of Medicine have developed a novel way to turn a gene on and off in the brain—a finding that could lead to new therapies for cancers and other genetic diseases.
Feng C. Zhou, PhD
Supported in part by the Indiana CTSI, the interdisciplinary team of neurologists and biological engineers discovered they could use a toolbox of light-sensitive proteins and enzymes, combined with a blue light, to alter the epigenetic state of the gene Ascl1, which acts as a switchboard telling stem cells in the brain what to turn into.
Their findings, recently published in...

Applications Sought for IIMR VA Young Investigator Award
LETTER OF INTENT (LOI) DEADLINE- JANUARY 18, 2017
APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE – FEBRUARY 08, 2017
IIMR’s mission is to promote and enhance research efforts that will ultimately result in improved quality of life for veterans and for the greater population. In support of that mission, IIMR works to encourage investigators to develop their research careers by working with IIMR and the VA and veterans to answer important questions. One way IIMR encourages investigators is to sponsor the annual Young Investigator Award Program, which provides a competitive experience for investigators to explore the possibilities of VA-related research.
The IIMR is currently seeking submissions...
