Results of the MRM Internal Funding Fall 2021 Competition
The MRM Network is pleased to announce the results of the Fall 2021 MRM Internal Funding Competition.
The MRM Internal Funding supports research that seeks novel forward-looking insights and discovery into a basic understanding of stem cells biology, which ultimately translates into novel technologies and regenerative medicine. It aims at facilitating the use of the numerous quality platforms built across McGill University by funding pilot research projects using these MRM-affiliated core facilities.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the 4 Awardees:
Prof. Corinne Hoesli, Department of Chemical Engineering, for her project: Development of an eNOS endothelial colony forming cell reporter line, involving the Flow Cytometry Innovation Platform and the Early Drug Discovery Unit (EDDU).
Prof. Dieter Reinhardt, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, for his project: Pathomechanisms leading to corner fracture type spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, involving the McGill Genome Centre.
Dr. Nicoletta Eliopoulos, Department of Surgery, Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research (LDI), for her project: Preconditioning Adipose-Derived Stem Cells for Enhanced Kidney Protection and Repair involving the LDI Small Animal Research Core.
Dr. Rahul Gawri, Department of Surgery, McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), for his project: Inorganic Polyphosphate Mediated Mitochondrial Rescue in Intervertebral Disc Degeneration, involving the RI-MUHC Molecular Imaging Core Facility.
We would like to congratulate all the winners and participants in this competition and to extend the warmest thanks to the members of the MRM Funding & Infrastructure Committee for their evaluation of all the applications.
