Norman Harris, PhD, Chairman of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, and Cherie-Ann Nathan, MD, FACS, Chairman and Professor of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery, received the inaugural Chancellor’s Aim High Research Awards.
This intramural grant funding was made possible by generous unrestricted giving from donors to LSU Health Shreveport’s Chancellor’s Fund for Excellence.
Dr. David S. Guzick, Chancellor at LSUHS, established this award to support faculty members who have an active R01 grant from the NIH and need to generate data to submit a new grant application. Faculty members can receive up to $100,000 for one year of support. Funding such as this for our faculty members ensures LSUHS remains a leader in research for years to come.
Dr. Harris’s research project title is “Neurovascular Effects of Methamphetamine on the Retina,” and Dr. Nathan’s is “Targeting Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor-2b in Prevention and Treatment of Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma”.
