UC Davis Scientist Receives Funding From Shriners Hospitals For Children For Juvenile Arthritis Research

adamopoulosPosted January 18, 2013

Iannis Adamopoulos, a researcher dedicated to studying diseases of the immune and skeletal systems, has received $1 million in grants from Shriners Hospitals for Children to find new treatment targets for juvenile arthritis — the most common cause of orthopaedic disability among children.

Adamopoulos is an assistant professor of rheumatology, allergy and clinical immunology at UC Davis and principal investigator for the Institute for Pediatric Regenerative Medicine, a research collaboration of the UC Davis School of Medicine and Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California. He will use the funding to define the role of leukotriene B4 (LTB4) in juvenile arthritis...(Read full article here)

UC Davis Scientist Receives a $1.5 Million Grant for Rheumatoid Arthritis Research

Posted July 11, 2012

UC Davis researcher Iannis Adamopoulos has received a $1.5 million grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases to study the causes of rheumatoid arthritis -- a chronic disease that affects people of all ages and leads to permanent bone and joint damage.

Adamopoulos began investigating inflammation and arthritis at Oxford University, where he studied interactions of the immune and skeletal systems in the progression of the disease. His research currently focuses on cells known as osteoclasts and their role in triggering cellular and molecular events that lead to bone destruction...(Read full article here)

TRL is an independent subsidiary of Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharmaceutical Corporation (MTPC) whose role is to discover and develop potential biological drug candidates for therapy in autoimmune diseases. TRL research has an emphasis on immunological and molecular biology approaches to lead identification. Currently, TRL’s efforts are directed towards antibody and antibody related research to target specific immune cells and soluble factors, as well as investigating new methods for modulating immune cell functions. TRL has established a collaborative relationship with the Adamopoulos Laboratory to further its goals of identifying lead preclinical compounds for further development.
