Jiang & Gitajn win SYNERGY translational pilot funds

Together with Dr. Leah Gitajn, Assistant Professor in Orthopaedic Surgery, Shudong Jiang, PhD won a 2018 pilot grant from the Dartmouth SYNERGY program for their project “A Pilot Study Evaluating Bone and Tissue Perfusion and Oxygen Tension in the Setting of Extremity Fracture.” Their project was one of five selected out of 27 preliminary proposals entered. The grant program fosters collaboration among researchers in basic science, translational research, and health services.

The SYNERGY Translational Pilot Grant Program funds innovative interdisciplinary research with clear potential for translation into patient-oriented care and improved population health, and is coordinated at the Dartmouth SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Science Institute.

2017 Awardees with ties to the Optics in Medicine program are:

  1. Scott Davis, PhD (Assistant Research Professor, Engineering/Thayer) and Kimberley Samkoe, PhD (Assistant Research Professor, Surgery; Adjunct Assistant Professor, Engineering/Thayer) for their project “Bio-slice: Whole-body, High-resolution 3-D Biodistribution Imaging of Multiple Agents.”
  2. Geoffrey Luke, PhD (Assistant Professor, Engineering/Thayer) and Lesley Jarvis, MD, PhD (Associate Professor, Medicine) for their project “Ultrasound Image-Guided Delivery of Oxygen-Carrying Nanoparticles for Radiation Therapy.”
