Sergio Catz and Gennaro Napolitano Awarded Cystinosis Research Grant

TSRI Associate Professor Sergio Catz and Gennaro Napolitano, research associate in the Catz lab, have been awarded a one-year grant from the Cystinosis Research Foundation (CRF) for their research “Small Molecule Regulators of Vesicular Trafficking to Enhance Lysosomal Exocytosis in Cystinosis.”

A rare, deadly metabolic and genetic disease that slowly destroys every organ in the body, including the liver, kidneys, eyes, muscles, thyroid and brain, cystinosis afflicts about 500 children and young adults in the United States and 2,000 worldwide.
