University of Pittsburgh receives $3.54 million translational bioengineering research award

Khanwilkar, who has studied, taught, and conducted research at the University of Utah for 28 years, most recently as an adjunct professor in the Department of Bioengineering, is the founder of six medical device product/service companies.

Coulter Foundation Director of Research Awards Michael Gara agreed that passion and commitment were key determinants in Pitt's selection as an award recipient. Another significant determinant was the strength of the relationships the foundation has had with both individuals like Borovetz and the Pitt researchers whom the foundation already supports through the Coulter Translation Research Awards program for individual investigators.
