1. HD081216-01A1 Folic Acid, Parental Mutation Rates and the Risk for Neural Tube Defects.

 

This new 5 year grant with Drs. Finnell and Yunping Lei as the co-Principal Investigators will test the hypothesis that folic acid prevents neural tube defects by suppressing spontaneous mutations.


2. HD083809-01A1 Intervention Strategies for Non-Folate Responsive Neural Tube Defects.

 

This new 5 year grant with Drs. Finnell and Dean Appling as the co-Principal Investigators will explore the importance of the mitochondrial one carbon metabolism using the Mthfd1l knockout mouse with respect to the etiology of non-folate responsive neural tube defects.


3. 2P01HD067244-06 Risk Genes and Environment Interactions in NTDs.

 

While this might be premature, the renewal of our existing program project grant with Drs. Elisabeth Ross and Steven Gross of the Weill Cornell Medical College looks like it will be renewed for another 5 years.


4. R13 HD084156 2015 International Conference on Neural Tube Defects

 

NIH graciously and generously supported our most recent international conference on neural tube defects.
