Qingfu Zhu notified of K-INBRE Postdocotoral Award

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Qingfu Zhu, a Post-Doctoral Scholar working under Prof. Mei He, has just been notified that he will receive an award from the Kansas Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (K-INBRE). The title of his research proposal is "3D micro-assembly enabled electro-transfection for regulating human immunity." This award is supported by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and will aid his research for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

The purpose of the Kansas INBRE (K-INBRE) is to strengthen the ability of Kansas researchers to compete effectively for NIH funds by building a “critical mass” of junior and senior investigators, as well as undergraduates, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows supported with cutting edge technology within a scientific research theme. The scientific research theme chosen for the K-INBRE is Cell and Developmental Biology. The program brings together NIH-funded mentors, trainees, and promising new investigators from each of the three Scientific Partner Institutions to drive forward a major statewide initiative to build Kansas strength in this critical life sciences research area. Because of geographic considerations in our large but sparsely populated state, emerging perceptions of the power of team science and the central issue of a skilled workforce, we focus on integration, communication, and training.

Congratulations, Dr. Zhu!​
