Results of the MRM Internal Funding Fall 2022 Competition
The MRM Network is pleased to announce the results of the Fall 2022 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.
The MRM wants to encourage collaboration between its members and to this end, we added to the competition additional funding for collaborative applications where two MRM Principal Investigators can apply for funding together.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the Awardees:
Chan Gao, Department of Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), and Reza Sharif-Naeini, Department of Physiology, for their project: Ectopic bone formation and pain associated with spinal cord injury, involving the RI-MUHC Proteomics Platform.
Luc Mongeau, Department of Mechanical Engineering, for his project: Engineering a cost-effective cancer-modulating injectable scaffold to disguise tumor microenvironment by regulating alternative splicing of a cancer stem cell marker, involving the Advanced Bioimaging Facility (ABIF), the GCI Flow Cytometry Innovation Platform and the Imaging and Molecular Biology Platform (IMBP).
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 the applications.
