UW Bioengineering Assistant Professor Deok-Ho Kim and Charles Murry, UW professor of bioengineering, pathology and cardiology/medicine, have received one of three 2016 ITHS Collaboration Innovation Awards. The award encourages the development of new interdisciplinary collaborations that address critical transitions in translational research. The award seeks to recognize new collaborations that address significant translational problems in innovative ways, have long-term sustainability and show deep commitment to a common goal. This pilot award will provide up to $50,000 for one year.
ITHS is dedicated to rapidly translating scientific discovery to clinical practice for the benefit of patients and communities throughout Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho and beyond.
