Ramya receives an R21 award from the National Institutes of Health.

Ramya’s R21 application (in collaboration with coI Prof. Luis G. Villa-Diaz at Oakland University) was awarded $403,000 from NIH NIBIB. This funding will help the lab unravel how glycocalyx-mimetic cell culture coatings impact the expansion and genetic modification of mesenchymal stem/signaling cells. This is the first funded proposal in Ramya’s independent career.
