Yogesh Dwivedi, Ph.D., received an AFSP Standard Research Grant to study MicroRNA (miRNA) expression in the brains of depressed people who died by suicide, comparing them with brains of people who died by other causes. MicroRNAs are the molecules that tell genes when to turn on and turn off. MiRNAs are plentiful and play a major role in how our brains function and in the causes of many diseases. Treatments focusing on miRNA’s are being developed and tested. AFSP has funded Dr. Dwivedi to study many miRNAs. Read article here.
