Dr. Scott O’Grady Receives NIH Grant

Dr. Scott O’Grady received a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that investigates the underlying mechanisms by which environmental allergens induce inflammation and susceptibility to asthma. These studies are designed to identify novel signaling pathways and potential drug targets relevant to the development of new pharmacotherapies for the treatment of allergic inflammation of the airways. The grant is a continuation of NIH funding based on a long-standing collaboration between Dr. Scott O'Grady and Dr. Hirohito Kita, Director of the Allergic Diseases Research Laboratory at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. The total award amounts to $2,564,749 with approximately $1.4 million awarded to Dr. O'Grady for a period of 5 years.
