NIH-FUNDED RESEARCH

by | Dec 6, 2019

In addition to our commercial operations, Xona Microfluidics Inc performs NIH-funded research within our state-of-the-art research lab. We encourage and seek collaborations with other institutions for mutually beneficial projects. We believe focusing on research together with our commercial activities is critical for our success.

Current projects:

Grant #: R21NS109750                         Taylor (PI)                         04/2020-03/2022

Funding agency: NINDS

Title: The influence of axonal ER on retrograde synapse loss following axon damage

The goal of this project is to investigate calcium-dependent axon-to-soma signaling following axotomy that causes somatic ER changes and synapse loss.
