After reviewing many exceptional applications, our panel has selected the recipient of the PurSolutions’ 2021 Reagent Scholarship:
Mr. Narendran Annadurai
Palacky University Olomouc
Mr. Annadurai is pursuing the development of tau aggregation inhibitors for neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease. He will primarily be using in vitro aggregation assays and microscopy techniques. Mr. Annadurai is also pursuing small molecule inhibitors of MARK4 (microtubule affinity regulating kinase 4)-mediated tau phosphorylation. In his application, Mr. Annadurai emphasizes the importance of an international and collaborative community in understanding cytoskeleton proteins and their involvement in neurodegenerative disease pathophysiology.
By awarding premium quality cytoskeletal proteins and reagents every year, PurSolutions aims to help scientists like Mr. Narendran Annadurai achieve their research and career goals.
