Five-Year NIA Grant Awarded to Efrat Levy

New York – Dr. Efrat Levy, Head of the Levy lab at the CDR, has received a five-year R01 grant from the National Institute on Aging. The grant, titled “Preventing early events in Aβ-driven pathology in vivo,” is timely, according to Dr. Levy, given the growing interest in developing extracellular vesicles (EV) as therapeutic vehicles for both systemic and brain disorders, and our investigations of EV as candidates to act as vehicles to deliver protective AβIt within the brain as a foundation for developing novel EV-based treatments for AD.
