NSF, NIH fund projects led by BME faculty member

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.
