Grinnell College Associate Professor Mark Levandoski plans to add to basic scientific knowledge with the three-year $373,000 grant his research was awarded last week by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. His past research, furthered by work under the new grant, Levandoski says, may possibly point to new approaches for addressing some of humankind's most intractable diseases, including Alzheimer's, epilepsy, Parkinson's and schizophrenia.
