The Berthiaume Institute for Precision Health has awarded funding to researchers spanning multiple departments at the University of Notre Dame. Based on feedback by external reviewers, BIPH awarded proposals with two types of funding: seed grants, which provide funding for the exploration or development of new ideas and/or tools, and harvest grants, which help researchers expand on established projects.
The 2022 BIPH grant awardees are:
Yichun Wang, assistant professor of chemical engineering, and Satyajyoti Senapati, research associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, and Xin Lu, John M. and Mary Jo Boler Associate Professor of Biology, for their research, "A high throughput and high efficiency platform for therapeutic exosome production and evaluation." (seed grant)
Meenal Datta, assistant professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, for the project "Mining myeloid “mechanomics” to identify novel drug targets in glioblastoma." (harvest grant)
Satyajyoti Senapati, research associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, and Hsueh-Chia Chang, Bayer Corporation Professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, and professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, for the research titled, "A primary care blood screening test for Alzheimer's disease."
