Ryan Gilbert will receive $1.5M from NIH for his grant "Enhanced Neuroprotection Following Acute SCI Using Fibrous Materials" will be funded. The grant will allow the Gilbert group to explore the mechanisms by which electrospun fibers change astrocyte and neuron responses in vitro. Subsequently, they aim to translate these materials within animal models of spinal cord injury in consultation with neuroscientists at Ohio State.
Among the factors that drew doctoral candidate Joshua McLane to Rensselaer was a personal connection, hometown appeal, and “the name Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.”
Five Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute graduate students have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships.
