A team from ETH Zurich and University College Dublin (Dr. Hans-Benjamin Braun), led by Dr.
Mathematics department alumnus Shubhabrata (Joy) Mukherjee, PhD, a research assistant professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, has received a prestigious NIH Research Career Development Award (K25 award). This is a 5-year (approximately $652,000) award which has training and research components. More information about the award "Molecular Mechanisms Of Alzheimer's Disease Neuropathological Endophenotypes" is available here.
The purpose of these NIH Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Awards is to attract to NIH-relevant research those investigators whose quantitative science and engineering research has thus far not been focused primarily on questions of health and disease. These K25 awards support productive professionals with quantitative (e.g., statistics, economics, computer science, physics, chemistry) and engineering backgrounds to integrate their expertise with NIH-relevant research.
