TRAILBLAZER AWARD RECEIVED
NH BioMade faculty members, Kyung Jae Jeong and Young Jo Kim, associate and assistant professors, respectively, of chemical engineering, received a National Institutes of Health “Trailblazer” award for a project that aims to improve chronic wound healing. With the three-year, $600,000 grant, from NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, Jeong and Kim will develop an injectable formulation for chronic wounds using melanin extracted from cuttlefish and a biocompatible hydrogel.
