UM / MSU Team Awarded NIH Funding to Develop Potential Therapeutics for Scleroderma
July 9, 2014

U-M and MSU researchers have joined together to develop novel compounds for the treatment of scleroderma, supported by a three-year, $2M award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). "Dr. [Scott] Larsen is a member of a team of basic science and clinician researchers at U-M and MSU who have joined forces to further the development of novel compounds for the treatment of scleroderma. The initial discovery was made by Dr. Richard Neubig, chair of the pharmacology and toxicology department at Michigan State University, via high-throughput screening at the Center for Chemical Genomics at the U-M Life Sciences Institute."
