UAMS Gets $1.8 Million Research Project Grant

LITTLE ROCK – A scientist at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has reached a status few achieve by being awarded his third concurrent R01-type Research Project Grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Daohong Zhou, M.D., received the $1.8 million grant to support his research on a therapy to prevent and possibly reverse a lung disease found in patients who undergo radiation therapy for cancer. Zhou is associate director for basic research in the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.

“In this era of extreme competition for NIH grants, it’s very uncommon for an investigator to have three R01-type Research Project Grants. This accomplishment speaks to the significance of Dr. Zhou’s research and the confidence his peers have in his ability to accomplish the goals outlined in each of the projects,” said Lawrence Cornett, Ph.D., UAMS vice chancellor for research.    MORE
