Home > Press > UMSL scientists earn $1.83 million NIH grant

Abstract:
Scientists at the University of Missouri-St. Louis have received a $1.83 million, five-year R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health for their research on new antiviral drug candidates that they hope will be used to fight high-risk human papillomavirus, or HPV, the cause of most cervical cancer. The grant is called "Biophysics of Drug Interactions with Viral Episomes."

UMSL scientists earn $1.83 million NIH grant

St. Louis, MO | Posted on July 18th, 2010

The lead investigator for the project is James Bashkin, research associate professor, who will collaborate with associate professors Cynthia Dupureur and Michael Nichols, all members of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and the Center for Nanoscience at UMSL. These faculty members are collaborating with Chris Fisher of NanoVir, LLC, a drug discovery company dedicated to finding treatments for HPV, a primary cause of both abnormal pap smears and cervical cancer. Bashkin is a founding member of the company along with Fisher, who is director of biology at the company based in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
