Day 17 ~ October 2014 as GLOBAL NPD Awareness Month ~ NNPDF & CCNNPDF Funded Fellows

Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,

As we continue our focus on foundation funded research this week, the 17th day of our GLOBAL October 2014 Niemann-Pick Disease Awareness month event, we are highlighting another 2014 research award recipient. The National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF), along with the Canadian Chapter of the NNPDF, are pleased to announce to our NPD communities in the United States and Canada ~ the 2014 recipients of the Peter G. Pentchev & Edward H. Schuchman 2014 Fellowship awards and grants!

For Day 17, we turn our focus to the announcement of a research grant award in support of our NPD Type C (NPC) community through the funding of scientific efforts to develop a roadmap for NPC drug development. Kanagaraj Subramanian from The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA is the grant award recipient and Principal Investigator of this work.

Project Title:
"Roadmap for Drug Development for Niemann-Pick Disease"
The objective of this research proposal is to develop a new class of therapeutics that could rescue the folding
and trafficking defect of most NPC1 variants found in the clinical population.
