AA&MDSIF PNH Grant Recipients

Congratulations to AA&MDSIF 2014 PNH grant recipients Patrizia Ricci, PhD, in the Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery at the University of Naples, Italy, and Chao-Yie Yang, at the University of Michigan. Dr. Ricci’s research project (Small peptide C3-inhibitors for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria: moving towards the bedside) aims to complete pre-clinical development of a novel complement inhibitor that targets early events in complement activation, the component-3 of the complement cascade. Mr. Yang’s research (Discovery of small molecule complement inhibitors as the treatment for PNH) proposes to discover and make rational designs to small molecules guided by protein structures to develop complement inhibitors.
