MSI PI on Team Awarded NIH Grant for Heart-Attack Treatment


Professor Joseph Metzger, an MSI Principal Investigator and Chair of the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology, is the Principal Investigator for a $2.6 million NIH grant that will fund research into new treatments for heart attacks. The Metzger group uses MSI for molecular dynamics simulations as part of their research into proteins that affect the contraction of the heart.

Other lead investigators include Dr. Demetris Yannopolous (Medical School) and Regents Professor Frank Bates (Chemical Engineering and Materials Science). An article about the grant and the research it will fund can be found on the AHC’s HealthTalk blog.
