David K. Grandy papers

This week we received our first donation of papers of David K. Grandy, Ph.D., Professor in the Physiology and Pharmacology Department. Dr. Grandy's research focuses on neurotransmitters, with the goal of developing new drugs to treat drug addiction and mental illness. His work also seeks to raise awareness of the biological causes of mental illness, reducing the social stigma faced by its victims.

During our first visit with Dr. Grandy, Karen and I were treated to a guided tour of his busy lab. The Grandy Lab conducts research on dopamine signaling in the brain, and has also identified three previously unknown signaling systems.

We look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Grandy to preserve the records of his research in the university archives.
