An international leader in neurofibromatosis research has received a $3.5 million grant to study why people with the same genetic mutation – in this case, a mutation that causes the genetic disorder known as neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) – develop markedly different signs and symptoms.
The award — for David H. Gutmann, MD, PhD, the Donald O. Schnuck Family Professor and director of the Neurofibromatosis Center at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis — is an inaugural Research Program Award from the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The grant provides Gutmann wide latitude; it will allow him to devote half of his efforts for the next five to eight years to solving this research problem.
