The grant is in the amount of $99,500 per year for 2 years for research that involves both ULM and the University of Louisiana at Layfayette.
The title of the project is "Microscopic Quantitaive Mapping Ion Flux in Rat Brain." This project will combine the technical expertise of experienced researchers in neuroscience and experimental atomic physics in the development and refinement of new strategies for the study of structural/neurochemical and functional parameters within glucose 'sensor' sites in the brain. This unique collaboration will be undertaken by Dr. Karen Briski, Director of Research and Graduate Studies in the College of Pharmacy at ULM; Dr. Gary Glass, Professor of Physics and Director of the Louisiana Accelerator Center (LAC) at ULL; and Dr. William Hollerman, Assistant Professor of Physics, ULL.
