VALHALLA – Two National Institutes of Health grants totaling $503,000 have been awarded to New York Medical College in Valhalla to study Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and how common streptococcus bacterium causes severe illness.
“We are looking forward to finding a simple and safe way to help patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome minimize some of their symptoms and improve their quality of life,” said Marvin Medow, Ph.D., professor of pediatrics and associate director of The Center for Hypotension at NYMC. That grant is for $246,000.
The second grant, for $257,000, from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will allow the college to explore how common streptococcus bacterium manifests into serious illness.
Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D, NY17) announced the grants.
