Dr. Leonidas Bleris, Associate Professor of Bioengineering, received $623,679 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his project Collaborative Research: Unraveling Extracellular MicroRNA Communication. His research focuses on the relatively unexplored process of cell-to-cell communication via microRNAs. The goal of this project is to develop a better understanding of microRNA-mediated cell-to-cell communication and a new set of resources and tools for investigating interactions in a variety of organisms, including humans.
