Sept. 14, 2011
Monica Burdick is the principal investigator on two cancer research projects that have received funding from the National Science Foundation/National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health.
Burdick, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, is a member of the biomedical engineering program faculty. An award of $499,996 from the National Science Foundation/National Cancer Institute will support a study designed to identify cancer stem cells. Two other BME faculty members, David Tees and Fabian Benencia, will work with Burdick on the project.
The $442,500 National Institutes of Health grant funds research into the development of a novel approach for analyzing pathological tissue samples. BME faculty members Doug Goetz and Ramiro Malgor are among the investigators on the project.
