Illinois group to study brain health as part of NIH BRAIN Initiative

Martha Gillette, professor of cell and development biology at Illinois, has studied the brain for most of her life. Her current work focuses on improving the lives of those affected by brain disorders.

Gillette, an IGB affiliate and Beckman Institute member, and colleagues were awarded more than $2 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) BRAIN Initiative to develop an analytical platform that can lead to new developments in neuroscience and create diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities in treating neurological diseases.
