September TRIbune

In this issue of The TRIbune, we highlight the work of Dr. Prasad Padala, M.D., whose TRI pilot award helped him acquire a $1.1 million VA grant. Padala is conducting an exciting study using magnetic stimulation of the brain (rTMS) to help delay the onset of dementia.

TRI Director Laura James, M.D., reminds researchers of the newest pilot opportunity for opioid addiction and pain management research. The call for applications was issued Monday (see announcement below).

We had a great turnout for our second Open House and have included the comments of a few attendees. We also highlight a study by Erika Petersen, M.D., of a spinal cord stimulation device to treat neuropathic pain. And as always, we include the publication citations of studies that have utilized TRI services or support.
