A multi-institution team led by a Weill Cornell Medicine scientist has been approved for $30 million in funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to study heart procedure outcomes in underrepresented groups.
An interdisciplinary research team received a five-year, $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a new generation of biosynthetic lubricants that have the potential to treat arthritis and reduce the painful friction of artificial joints.
