The National Institutes of Health has awarded a New York researcher $1.65 million to study the vagus nerve’s role in sepsis, the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection.
Valentin Pavlov of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (Manhasset, N.Y.) received the five-year grant to examine how the vagus nerve affects the inflammation and metabolism associated with sepsis. Having a better understanding of the nervous system’s signaling during sepsis could lead to the identification of new therapeutic targets within the scope of bioelectronic medicine, according to the institute.
