Case Western Reserve nets $2 million for disease research
Crain’s Cleveland Business (subscription required): Stan Gerson, dean of the School of Medicine, discussed a new $2 million grant from the Mt. Sinai Health Foundation to research treatments for cancer and other serious diseases. Specifically, he noted the funding will enable the university to recruit faculty across its basic science departments with an interest in novel therapeutics for unmet medical needs. “It could be a pediatric disorder, it could be a genetic disorder, it could be diabetes, it could be an otologic condition, it could be cancer,” Gerson said. “So, across our basic sciences, we will use every and all means we can of deciphering a critical way to manage a new therapeutic through our basic science discovery.”
