Dr. Liyun Wang, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has been awarded an NIH grant to continue research on exercise and bone quality. This five-year $1.9-million grant is a competitive renewal of her previous NIH grant on transport mechanisms in mineralized bone. With this award Wang aims to identify new molecular targets for preventing and slowing the onset of osteoporosis. Partnerships on this research include Cindy Farach-Carson (Rice University), Lucas Lu (Mechanical Engineering at UD), Catherine Kirn-Safran (Biological Sciences at UD), and Sherry Lu from the University of Pennsylvania.
