Current Research Projects

Emory University Center for Systems Imaging Pilot Research Grant
[18F]FDG PET Imaging of APPNL-G-F/NL-G-F Mutant Mice
The major goals of this project are to generate pilot data to assess our procedures for positron emission tomography imaging of Alzheimer’s disease knock-in mice and to assess whether there are brain activity impairments in these animals.                                         


Mercer University College of Pharmacy
Summer Reserach Program
A comprehensive and high-resolution analysis of histone modifications relevant for alcoholism
The goal of this project is the provide stipend and supply support for a PharmD student, Vinh Trang, to conduct an intensive summer research project.                                  


Mercer University Seed Grant
[18F]FDG Positron Emission Tomography Imaging of a Novel Mouse Model of Alzheimer’s Disease
The goals of this project are to further our efforts to develop procedures for positron emission tomography imaging of a state-of-the-art, knock-in mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease and to characterize their response to novel pharmacotherapeutics.
