NIH Funding for Non-Healing Wounds in Diabetic Patients

Dr. Katherine Gallagher, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Michigan and 2012 Wylie Scholar has just received $2.4 million from the NIH to investigate how we may be able to better treat non-healing wounds, a major cause of morbidity and death in patients with Type 2 Diabetes.  The project aims to understand how certain healing factors are triggered so that, one day we may be able to manipulate that mechanism with targeted therapeutics.
