National Institute of Health (NIH/NIGMS) has awarded the University of Memphis researcher, Prof. Yongmei Wang in the Chemistry department, an R15 grant to support their research in polymer-based gene delivery vectors. The grant is effective from June 1st, 2013 with a total award $314,493. Prior to this competitive award from NIH, Dr. Wang’s group received an award on the same project from Oak Ridge Associated University (ORAU) and Oak Ridge National Lab jointly sponsored High Performance Computing Grant, with a total monetary award of $75,000 which ended on May 31, 2013. The two awards nicely overlap with each other. Dr. Wang’s group uses various modeling techniques to push forward the development of polymer-based gene delivery vectors into real translational applications.
