Prof. Kent Leach has received a grant, entitled “Cell delivery for irradiated bone defects,” as a NIH Small Research Grant through the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research Small Grant Program for New Investigators. Prof. Leach’s lab will explore the capacity of fibrin gels engineered with enhanced physical properties to serve as effective delivery vehicles for co-transplanted cellular populations as a treatment option for irradiated bone defects such as those stemming from head and neck cancers.
