DPALM faculty member Keri Csencsits-Smith, Ph.D, together with co-investigators Mary McGuire, Ph.D and Mary Kay Koenig, MD (Department of Pediatrics), was awarded a grant in support of a collaborative study on treatment of lesions in patients with Neurofibromatosis. The DPALM Morphoproteomics laboratory, supervised by Robert Brown, MD will play an integral role in this work.

Her project, Short Term Molecular Monitoring of Neurofibromatosis Response to mTOR Inhibition to Uncover Novel Targets for Treatment, will be funded thanks to the Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation and the Texas NF Golf Classic.
