S100B is a protein that is upregulated in neuronal injury. The upregulation of S100B has been observed to start multiple cascades that result in neuronal death. The inhibition of S100B would be a promising treatment for neuronal injury. In our research, we attempt to do exactly so.


We would like to thank the Asher Committee for providing us with a grant that enabled us to carry out this summer research. We would also like to thank Dr. Henning Schneider for providing us with NIH 3T3 cells from his lab so that we could conduct experiments to troubleshoot out cell growth.
