ASAP has taken an important step forward in the
drive to "Find A Cure", by awarding grants to three distinguished
researchers. The recipients, Dr. Frank Loth at the University of
Illinois-Chicago, Dr. Joshua Adler at Wayne State University and
Dr. Mary Eaton at the University of Miami will each receive a one
year, $50,000 grant to pursue research focused on syringomyelia.
The research grants are the culmination of a
process, defined by the Research Committee, which started with a
call for proposals. By advertising in major journals, posting on
the ASAP web site and through a direct mailing to medical schools,
ASAP was able to attract a wide range of quality proposals.
