Dr. Michelle Dawson, assistant professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at Georgia Tech, has been named a recipient of two research grants for her work in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs are bone marrow-derived adult stem cells that are involved in wound healing and tissue regeneration.

The first award is sponsored by the Georgia Tech and Emory Center for Regenerative Medicine (GTEC) for a project to study new approaches for engineering MSCs to increase the rate and effectiveness for healing wounds. The award is funded in part by the Atlanta Clinical and Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) and provides funding for one year. ACTSI is an inter-institutional magnet that brings together research investigators, community clinicians, professional societies, and industry partners to collaborate on clinical and translational research projects. Emory, Atlanta–Morehouse School of Medicine, and Georgia Tech form the ACTSI inter-institutional partnership.
