UCI engineering researchers get $1.9 million grant from NIH for ‘microtsunami’ microscope

The National Institutes of Health has awarded UCI engineering researchers a four-year, $1.9 million grant for the development of a noninvasive biophotonics technology platform. The proposed new optical tool will enable scientists to investigate the role of mechanical forces in normal-tissue disease development, and it has applications for high-throughput drug screening. The collaborative, interdisciplinary project […]
