Prof. Van Keuren Receives Two New NIH Grants
Prof. Ed Van Keuren has recently received two new grants from the National Institutes of Health. One is for the development of nanoparticles of a novel copolymer to treat acute kidney injury. This is a collaborative project with Celdara Medical LLC, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and is funded by an SBIR grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases of the NIH. The second grant is for a project led by Prof. Sarah Stoll in the department of Chemistry at Georgetown. This research aims to develop nanoparticle contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging, and also includes Dr. Christopher Albanese and Dr. Olga Rodriguez from the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University.
