Science: The James S. McDonnell Foundation

The James S. McDonnell Foundation invests in outstanding research in complex systems, brain cancer, and human cognition through their 21st Century Science Initiative. The University of Michigan is proud to be a long-time partner of the Foundation, as together we solve complicated problems with a complex systems approach. Most recently, we are honored to announce that U-M diabetes researcher Santiago Schnell, Ph.D, has won a three-year research award from the Foundation for his work on the processes that trigger protein misfolding and accumulation in cells. Dr. Schnell is Associate Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, Research Associate Professor of Computational Medicine and Biology, and U-M Brehm Investigator at the Brehm Center for Diabetes Research. Visit the Brehm Center web site to read more about the fascinating work that Dr. Schnell’s team will undertake during the three years of the McDonnell grant.
