PFUND Researcher Receives Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award

Joseph M. Corey, MD, Ph.D., has been awarded a Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award (K08) by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) at NIH, which began 8/1/2004. His proposal, entitled “Fibrous Templates for Directed Nerve Regeneration” is co-mentored by Eva Feldman, MD, Ph.D. in Neurology and David Martin, Ph.D., in Materials Science and Engineering. In this grant, Dr. Corey will better understand how nerve cells can grow on special artificial fibers, so that patients with cut or damaged nerves and spinal cord injury may regain function.
