CCE Postdoc Receives NIH Pathway to Independence Award

George Lu, a postdoctoral researcher in Professor Mikhail Shapiro’s lab, has received a K99/R00 NIH Pathway to Independence Award designed to foster the transition of new investigators to research independence. It provides close to $1 Million in funding to support his research and for starting his independent lab. His research leverages the biomolecular engineering of gas vesicles (GVs) to develop genetically encodable methods for imaging and controlling cells in deep-lying tissues.
