Peripheral neuropathies are painful damage or disruption of the peripheral nerve function that affect millions of Americans, but sadly, most have no effective treatments. The Johns Hopkins Merkin Peripheral Neuropathy and Nerve Regeneration Center aims to advance peripheral neuropathy research, deepen our understanding of these conditions and their causes and develop viable therapies. Dr. Pabitra Sahoo, Research Assistant Professor in our Department, was just awarded a two year, $150,000 from the Merkin Center to conduct research aimed at "Establishing the kinetics for failure of axonal protein synthesis in chronic nerve injury". Congrats!
