Biological Sciences Past Grants

  • NIH R15 Grant (121536-01-N ) – Krishnamurthy PI, “role of small cellular RNAs in amplifying the cellular responses to virus infections”.   2010-2013
  • NIH R01Grant (DK088127-01A1) – Diakonova PI, “Role of JAK2-PAK1 interaction in prolactin-depending signaling”.  2010-2015
  • Song-Tao Liu, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor in the department, was recently awarded an NSF grant titled: “Assembly, Disassembly and Function of the Mitotic Checkpoint Complex”.  The total award request was for $658,406 for three years, and funding began 3-1-11.                                   
  • Guofa Liu, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor who joined our department in 2008, recently received a Whitehal Foundation Award entitled “Coordination of Neuronal Guidance in the developing Nervous System”. The total award amount is $225,000 for three years (3-1-2011 to 2-28-14).                    
  • Dr. Guofa Liu has also received an NIH R15 entitled “The coordination of Netrin Signal Transduction”. This grant includes total costs of approximately $438,000 and will run from 5-1-2011 to 4-30-2014.                    
  • Dr. Maria Diakonova recently received an NIH R01 award ($1,250,000 over 5 years) to study the role of JAK2- PAK1 interaction in prolactin-dependent signaling.  R01 grants are considered the “pinnacle” of individual grants in science, and Dr. Diakonova is to be commended.                       
  • The R01 grant is added to an existing NIH R15 grant awarded to Dr. Diakonova in 2008   to study the role of JAK2-PAK1 interaction in human breast cancer.  This R15 award   runs through 2011.  Congratulations Dr. Diakonova!                            
  • Dr. Malathi Krishnamurthy was awarded a NIH R15 grant ($462,000 over 3 years) to study the role of small cellular RNAs in amplifying the cellular responses to virus infections.
