Three Researchers Awarded CCTS Grant

Dr. Anna Kuhn, Dr. Mohammed Salman Shazeeb and Dr. Clifford Lindsay, all Assistant Professors in the Department of Radiology, were awarded a grant from CCTS (UMass Chan Center for Clinical and Translational Science) for $50,000. The title of their grant is A Deep Learning-Based Real-Time Vascular Anatomy Assessment Tool for Emergency Stroke Interventions

This is a PPP (Pilot Projects Program.) A major goal of CCTS is to accelerate the translation of basic discoveries into practical, cost effective solutions that improve human health. This was one of seven projects awarded. The PPP provides individual project awards (up to $50,000 for 1 year) on a competitive basis. As a result, the UMCCTS's Pilot Projects Program (PPP) funded seven projects starting in December 2021.  Five of the seven projects include collaborations between UMass Chan Medical School and institutions such as UMass Memorial Healthcare, UMass Amherst, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). 

Congratulations on a successful PPP application! We look forward to the next evolution of your research.
