Grants Received

Ray Koehler, PhD is a Co-investigator on two Phase I NIH STTR subcontracts from Brimrose Technology awarded to Jeeun Kang, PhD and Emad Boctor, PhD in the Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering. One grant is intended to develop a photoacoustic scanning device to image focal areas of brain deoxygenation resulting from stroke at the bedside in the NICU and PICU. The second grant is intended to use ultrasound neuromodulation linked to photoacoustic measurement of changes in brain oxygenation to detect hypoxic neural injury in neonates.
