Dr. Shreiber receives NSF CAREER Award

Professor David Shreiber received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the NSF. The CAREER Award, which is NSF’s most prestigious honor for junior faculty, provides $400,000 over a 5-year period. The research project, entitled “Engineered Biomaterial Gradients for Control of Neural Cells”, examines the response of regenerating axons and astrocytes to multiple gradients of guidance cues, with a long term objective of designing improved therapies for nerve and spinal cord regeneration, and also includes educational enhancements and outreach in Tissue Engineering.
