ASU Professors tackle large-scale public health challenges in partnership with Dignity Health
ASU and Dignity Health, one of the largest health care facility corporations, are collaborating on an initiative to seek solutions for major medical challenges. A series of initial grants are funding research intended to achieve the goal. The funded projects include two that will be led by Vikram Kodibagkar and Brent Vernon, Fulton Schools associate professors of biomedical engineering. Kodibagkar will work on developing advances in magnetic resonance imaging of brain tumors. Vernon will lead a multi-institutional program to translate liquid embolics to clinics.
