Last August the Institute for NanoBioTechnology placed a call for proposals in the area of Diagnostics. This was the fourth funding opportunity supported by INBT in one of it's core research areas.
The call for proposals related to diagnostics, which focussed on promising nanotechnology in the imaging of a specific disease, concluded the first year of the INBT seed grants. Five winning proposals by Johns Hopkins faculty have been selected to receive $20,000 each.
# "Tumor imaging by silica nanoparticles: binding to prostate specific membrane antigen" Howard Katz (MatSc) and Ronnie Mease (Radiology)
# "Diagnosing colon cancer risk through direct experimentation on biopsied cells" Andre Levchenko (BioMed) and Andrew Feinberg (Medicine/Oncology)
# "Nanomechanical techniques for cancer diagnosis" Sean Sun (MechE), Greg Bowman (Biophysics) & Peter Searson (MatSc)
# "Innovative technologies to study mechanisms of inflammation-induced CNS axonal degeneration" Nitish Thakor (BioMed), Arun Venkatesan (Neurology) & Avindra Nath (Neurology)
# "An integrated microfluidic nanosensor platform for point mutation detection of cancers" Jeff Wang (MechE) and Ie-Ming Shih (Pathology)
