UW Bioengineer Deok-Ho Kim and team awarded human frontier science program research grant

UW Bioengineering Associate Professor Deok-Ho Kim and a team of international collaborators were awarded a Human Frontiers Science Program (HFSP) Research Grant to investigate the dynamics of collective cell migration on curved surfaces. 
Their work aims to shed light on the mechanistic details underlying organism development and tissue repair, which could inform new and more effective approaches in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, according to a university article.

The HFSP Research Grants provide funding support to innovative, frontier research projects in life sciences that employ cutting-edge scientific and technological methodologies to study highly complex mechanisms in living organisms. The award specifically recognizes and encourages interdisciplinary research involving scientists from various countries to facilitate collaborations across borders and continents.

Dr. Kim and his collaborators are among 23 awardees of the grant from around the world, selected from 63 full applications and 770 initial letters of intent. The grant provides $400,000 annually for a three-year period.
