Elangovan receives two-year exploratory (R21) NIH grant

Dr. Satheesh Elangovan, Department of Periodontics, has received a two-year NIH grant. The award amount is projected to be $406,285 and will be used for his research, “A Novel RNA-Based Biomaterial for Bone Regeneration.” Results from this study will pro- vide critical information on the feasibility and effectiveness of cmRNA-based therapeutics for bone regeneration. New knowledge gained from the research will likely have implications in developing future bio-inspired materials for tissue engineering applications.

Co-investigators on Dr. Elangovan’s research project include Dr. Liu Hong, Dows Research; Dr. Deborah Dawson, director of the Biostatistics Unit; and Dr. Aliasger Salem, College of Pharmacy. Drs. Georgia K. Johnson, Department of Periodontics; Clark M. Stanford, University of Illinois, Chicago); and Michael Kormann (University of Tübingen, Germany) are consultants on this project.
