For this UTHSC researcher, effective stroke treatment is personal


A family history of strokes and the devastating toll exacted on his loved ones led Memphis professor and researcher Jianxiong Jiang to embark on a study to better understand one of the leading causes of death among adults. Jiang, associate professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, recently received a grant of more than $1 million from a division of the National Institutes of Health to conduct a study on strokes. Along with Jiawang Liu, director of the Medicinal Chemistry core at UTHSC, Jiang aims to develop new ways to treat ischemic strokes. Offering expertise in stroke models is Thaddeus S. Nowak, professor in the Department of Neurology at UTHSC.
