Our own Matt McMurray and his colleague Andrew Jones (Chemical, paper and biomedical engineering) have received positive press coverage for their grant work supported by PsyBio Therapeutics Corporation, most recently showcased in a Miami News story.
In the past year, they have received two different grants ($2.5M total) to study the application of neuropsychiatric drugs for the treatment of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and substance dependency. These multi-year grants will support research in both Matt’s and Jones’s labs.
Miami University President Greg Crawford said the groundbreaking research, “illustrates Miami’s entrepreneurial makeup and showcases the ingenuity of our faculty and the brilliance of our students.”
Congratulations to Matt for these very significant awards and for helping to build new partnership models with the private sector.
