Anatoly Martynyuk, Ph.D., professor of anesthesiology and neuroscience, has been awarded a five-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health. Martynyuk is the principal investigator on the project titled “Mechanisms and blood-based biomarkers of intergenerational neurobehavioral effects of general anesthetics.”
Co-investigators are Timothy Morey, M.D., professor and chair of anesthesiology; Terrie Vasilopoulos, Ph.D., associate professor of anesthesiology and orthopaedic surgery & sports medicine; Ling-sha Ju, M.D., member of the Martynyuk Laboratory: Neurosciences in Anesthesiology; Jason Brant, Ph.D., assistant professor of biostatistics; and Barry Setlow, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry.
The proposed studies in rodents are designed to test new hypotheses on the underlying mechanisms, behavioral, neuroendocrine and transcriptomic blood-based biomarkers, and potential targets for pharmacological therapies of the heritable effects of general anesthetics.
Congratulations to the team!
