Pharmaceutical sciences faculty in the College of Health Professions recently received a research grant from the National Science Foundation.
Sanku Mallik, principal investigator and professor of pharmaceutical sciences, and Amanda Brooks, co-principal investigator and assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences, received $251,750 through NSF Award No. 1625704 for the acquisition of an ultrasound imaging system.
The project, “MRI: Acquisition of a High-Resolution Ultrasound Imaging Instrument for Research and Education,” will enable researchers to explore the structure and interactions of biological and non-biological materials, such as 3D-printed scaffolds for cell and tissue cultures. It also will be used as a teaching platform.
