Park

Daewon Park, assistant professor of bioengineering, received an R21 grant from the National Eye Institute with his research titled “A Functional Reverse Thermal Gel for Retinal Ganglion Cell Axon Regeneration.” With this grant, Dr. Park will develop a bioinspired neurotrophic factor-releasing system for the regeneration of damaged retinal ganglion cell axon. This research will provide a platform of material-based treatment methodology of neural protection and regeneration.
