The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $1.6 million R01 grant to Dr. Murray Blackmore, associate professor of biomedical sciences. The grant is his second $1 million-plus grant from the organization in five years, and it will continue to fund his groundbreaking research on spinal cord injury and paralysis.
Dr. SuJean Choi, professor of biomedical sciences, recently received two prominent university honors: the Way Klingler Fellowship award and the Rev. John P. Raynor, S.J., Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence.
The Way Klingler Fellowship provides $50,000 per year for three years toward research projects in Dr. Choi's lab, while the Teaching Excellence award recognizes Dr. Choi for her contributions in the classroom.
