Congratulations to Professor Danielle Benoit, who has received a 2021 University Research Award with Professor Anne Meyer, associate professor of biology, and Professor Jin Xiao, associate professor of dentistry, for their project, “Biofilm-on-a-chip: Development of a microphysiological platform to revolutionize treatment paradigms.” University Research Awards (URA) provide “seed” grants for promising, high-risk projects, says Robert Clark, provost and senior vice president for research. The fund has been increased from $500,000 annually to $1 million with half of the funding coming from the President’s Fund, and the rest being matched by the various schools whose faculty members are recipients. Recipients must demonstrate that their projects favor new research with a high probability of being leveraged by future external funding.
