NIH Awards SPARC Grant to Purdue to Aid Stomach Neural Circuitry Research - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Health research managementPurdue University will lead a $10 million study to research the stomach’s neural circuitry and discover if bioelectronics medicine could help treat conditions such as diabetes or obesity.

Purdue said Tuesday the grant was received from the National Institutes of Health‘s Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions program, which supports research projects that focus on the development and evaluation of minimally invasive neuromodulation therapies.

Pedro Irazoqui, Purdue associate head and professor of biomedical engineering, will act as co-principal investigator on the “Mapping Stomach Autonomic Circuitry and Function for Neuromodulation of Gastric Disorders“ project aims to study the stomach’s neural system in a push to develop new electronic simulation therapies.

Irazoqui noted that the SPARC project will utilize engineering approaches from various professors as well as the anatomical and physiological knowledge of neuroscientists to aid the development of the next generation of electroceutical therapies.
