Dr. Ashley Brown, BME’s resident heart expert, has received a 2016 Scientist Development Grant from the American Heart Association (AHA). Her proposed study, developing an anti-microbial platelet that fights hemorrhaging, prevents infection, and enhances wound healing, has the potential to positively impact millions as bleeding out (with or without infection) is the major cause of death in both civilian and battlefield traumas. The award is given in support of highly promising early-career scientists in cardiovascular and stroke research, and there is no doubt that this is certainly an indication of things to come for Ashley. Way to go!
