Researchers at Clemson University and Prisma Health have received grants that will help them find new ways to treat cancer and manage chronic pain and diabetes.
Researchers from the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences and the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences have been awarded funding through the Innovation Maturation Fund, a joint effort of the Clemson University Division of Research and the Health Sciences Center at Prisma Health.
The Innovation Maturation Fund program serves as a catalyst to increase applied research collaborations between Clemson University research faculty and Prisma Health clinicians. The goal is to promote multidisciplinary scientific collaborations to develop healthcare innovations, said Chris Gesswein, executive director of the Clemson University Research Foundation.
“We are pleased to announce the third round of funding from this highly competitive and unique maturation program,” Gesswein added. “The proposed projects address significant healthcare needs, and we look forward to working with the research teams to improve healthcare delivery efficiencies and outcomes.”
