Dr. Ford Receives Grants

Dr. Ford was awarded two grants from the NIH.

The first is a 1-year grant from the NIGMS entitled “Neutrophil-dependent mediators of sepsis.” This project will use untargeted lipidomics to identify new mediators and prognostic biomarkers of multi-organ failure during sepsis.

He will also receive a supplement to the NIGMS award entitled “Chlorinated lipids in sepsis.” This grant is an equipment supplement that will be used to purchase a high resolution mass spectrometer.
