PDC Research Team Awarded Kilachand Award

“In 2018, BU trustee Rajen Kilachand (Questrom’74, Hon.’14) made the largest gift in Boston University’s history: $115 million. From that gift, $100 million established an endowment, the Rajen Kilachand Fund for Integrated Life Sciences and Engineering, to support interdisciplinary research and solutions to some of today’s most vexing societal woes and medical diseases.

Now, the first three teams to receive Kilachand awards through a University competition will use the funding to develop new solutions in multicellular design, biosensors, and modeling the human brain.” –The Brink

A team of researchers from the PDC has been awarded the first round of Kilachand Funds. The team includes James Galagan, Mark Grinstaff, Catherine Klapperich, Allison Dennis, and Karen Allen. The collaborative research team will be focused on building biosensors with microbes. For more information please check out The Brink article.
