Dr. Celia Shiau awarded 5-year NIH grant

Dr. Shiau awarded a 5-year Outstanding Early-Stage Investigator MIRA grant from NIGMS!  The MIRA mechanism provides flexibility for NIGMS-supported investigators to pursue innovative and important research directions.  The Shiau Lab will use this award to study the genetic and metabolic regulation of macrophage activation in vivo using zebrafish and other systems.  This has implications for the design of macrophage-targeted technologies for controlling inflammatory processes and addressing health challenges related to immune dysregulation.
