|Sherrie Gould on current fundraising efforts|
for Stem Cell Research.
Part one of the Howell Foundation’s Panel on Parkinson’s Disease presented the latest research being conducted by Jeanne F. Loring, Ph.D., Research Professor at Scripps Research Institute. NIH funding for this kind of research has dropped by 34%. A research program such as the one Dr. Loring is conducting has only a 1 in 10 chance of being funded by NIH. So funding additional lines of research requires more creativity each day.
Funds are currently and concurrently — and very creatively– being raised under the leadership of Sherrie Gould, a nurse practitioner in the Scripps Clinic Division of Neurology’s Movement Disorder Clinic and a founding member of the Parkinson’s Association’s Summit4Stem Cell (S4SC) Fundraising Group.
