Research Accomplishments

January 31, 2018

A collaboration between Zhao-Qing Luo (Biology), Chittaranjan Das (Chemistry) and Wen Jian (Biology) was seeded by PI4D in 2016 through the Research Incentive Program – Team Science Award for $30,000.  The team has been awarded an R01 from NIH for $413,311 (Chittaranjan Das - 1R01GM126296-01) in a project that aims to elucidate ways to combat dangerous bacterial infections such as those that cause Legionnaire’s disease.  This project marks an overall success for the Research Incentive Program that generated external grants for several faculty and generated an average return on investment of $12 for every $1 invested.
