Grant-Funded Research Support
Infant Feeding Method and Pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing, NIH-Funded Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE) Pilot Project Grant, 3/19/13-6/30/13, Hawley Montgomery-Downs, PhD, P.I., Marissa Carey, PhD, Co-Investigator. The main goal of this pilot study is to acquire preliminary data toward determining whether immunological protection, morphological changes or both provide direct benefit for the development of the upper airway, which will enable us to direct prevention efforts for sleep-disordered breathing.
Neurocognitive Function of Adolescents with Cystic Fibrosis, West Virginia University Research Funding Development Grant (RDG), Marissa E. Carey, Ph.D., P.I., 12/15/06-12/14/07. The goal of this pilot study was to characterize the neurocognitive function of a group of adolescents with CF using structural MRI and neuropsychological tests and to relate these to disease severity.
Math Intervention for Children with Leukemia, National Cancer Institute and National Institute of Nursing Research R01 NR04905-01A1, Ida M. Moore, DNS, P.I., Marissa E. Carey, Ph.D., Collaborator, 6/1/00-2/28/06. The major goal of this project was to test the efficacy of a math intervention in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Impact of Leukemia Treatment on the CNS and Development, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) RO1 HD37816, Kris L. Kaemingk, Ph.D., P.I., Marissa E. Carey, Ph.D., Co-Investigator, 7/1/99-6/30/05. The major goal of this project was to determine if markers of central nervous system injury obtained during treatment are related to subsequent cognitive outcomes.
Nonverbal Learning Disability and Pediatric CNS Cancer Survivors, independent project, Marissa E. Carey, Ph.D., P.I., 6/24/02-6/24/05. The main goal of this project was to investigate nonverbal learning disability as an explanation for cognitive and academic difficulties in pediatric childhood cancer survivors and to examine the impact of CNS cancer and its treatment on white matter brain volume using magnetic resonance imaging technology.
Using MRI to Assess CNS Injury in Leukemia and Lymphoma, University of Arizona College of Nursing Exploratory Center on Injury Mechanisms and Related Responses (CIMRR), National Institute of Nursing Research NINR P20NR07794, Kris L. Kaemingk, Ph.D., P.I., Marissa E. Carey, Ph.D., Co-Investigator, 8/1/02-8/01/03. The major goal of this project was to use structural MRI, diffusion weighted imaging, and MRI spectroscopy to assess brain-behavior relationships in leukemia and lymphoma survivors.
