Grant To Continue Research At ETSU On Naloxone Treatment
A faculty member at East Tennessee State University has received a grant that potentially could save even more lives from overdose by making an already life saving drug easier to administer and more effective. Dr. Ashana Puri, assistant professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences is researching the transdermal naloxone treatement of opioid addiction. The ten thousand dollar grant will help her continue research exploring ways to administer naloxone through the skin. Dr. Puri’s project will focus on making naloxone as easy as possible to administer, eliminating the use of needles and decreasing the chance of someone needing multiple doses.
