The director of Research at Palmer’s Florida Campus, Liang Zhang, M.D., Ph.D., was able to transfer his $165,000 training grant award from the National Institutes of Health to Palmer. He initially received the grant during his tenure as an assistant professor of pharmacology at the College of Medicine of the University of Illinois before he came to Palmer. This means that he has been able to continue his research work in aging-associated bone diseases at Palmer’s Florida Campus.

In addition, progress continues on the new Laboratory of Cell & Molecular Biology (LCMB) at the Florida Campus. It is scheduled to open in April 2009. Projects conducted at this new, state-of-the-art laboratory are planned to show how chiropractic may work on some aging-related diseases and provide the scientific mechanisms behind it.

Before the opening of the LCMB, Dr. Zhang has been collaborating with researchers at the University of South China. The efforts have produced fruitful results with one paper on cardiovascular protective mechanisms of nutritional supplements published in Biochemistry and Biophysics Research Communications and another paper on diabetes research being considered to be published in the prestigious Journal of Biological Chemistry.
