The Neeves Lab was awarded several grants including an NIH R01 for an integrated computational and experimental approach to understand the hemostatic response during treatment of bleeding and an NIH R21 for Encapsulated platelet in cast hydrogels (EPIC) to measure single platelet structure-function relationships for the amounts of $2,641,394 and $420,688, respectively. These grants will support new studies on the systems biology of bleeding and developing new technologies to measure bleeding and clotting risk. Two new postdocs, Matt Osmond and Sharif Rahman, and one new research associate, Michelle Near joined the lab to support ongoing projects in stroke and oral contraception and clotting. They also published 9 papers (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
