NIH awards $1.5 million to company founded by alumnus

Imbed Biosciences, a Madison-based company founded by chemical and biological engineering alum Ankit Agarwal and John T. and Magdalen L. Sobota Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering Nicholas Abbott, has been awarded a $1.5 million competitive Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Institute for Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), a division of National Institutes of Health (NIH). The company, which creates materials used for treating wounds, will use the grant to develop a novel polymeric nanofilm dressing. The project builds off Agarwal's postdoctoral research project with Abbott, which explored the use of silver in treating infections.
