Congratulations to rising star awarded inaugural grant

Dr Muhammad Shahid Javaid
Dr Muhammad Shahid Javaid, a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Neuroscience at the Central Clinical School is one of two successful grantees in the inaugural Homer Hack Small Research grants

“I’m delighted that my seed grant project was successful. It will be a great opportunity to explore pathological pathways involving the Homer1 mutation and to find a potential compound by in vitro drug screening to develop precision medicine treatment for people living with Homer1-mutated nervous system conditions,” said Dr Javaid.

Dr Javaid's project titled, "Drug screening using Homer1 patient’s iPSCs-derived neurons for clinical trials of precision medicine" will develop effective treatments for neurological conditions linked to the abnormal function of the HOMER1 gene variant. He will do this in collaboration with Professor Lisa Foa at The University of Tasmania where they have already grown neuronal cells from the induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) of an index patient with a Homer1 mutation.
