RIC receives $329K research grant

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island College received a $329,762 grant from the National Institutes of Health for a neuroscience research project, RIC announced Wednesday. The project will be led by RIC psychology professor Steven Threlkeld.

The grant will fund Threlkeld’s research on the influences of various types of treatments on pre-term infants, including anti-inflammatory intervention, preventative drug treatments and behavioral therapy. Threlkeld conducted previous work on the subject for his post-doctoral research.

The grant will also back students who assist Threlkeld in the research.

“My philosophy is that teaching and research are tightly linked and I couldn’t do one without the other,” Threlkeld said in a statement. “I couldn’t see myself doing research full time and not mentoring people or trying to excite or pass on that knowledge to the next generation.”
