is director of the Craniofacial Program, one of five programs funded under the Rutgers-led consortium in the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine. Hollinger's program is researching therapies to help heal combat injuries to the face and jaw.
Matyjaszewski, renowned for developing a method that allows for nanoscale control over the polymers formation, said the ability to control and block mineralization and bone formation opens up many compelling opportunities for increased research. Heterotopic ossification can occur in a number of situations other than amputation, most commonly after joint replacement surgery.
The new research grant also will support two research staffers, three full-time Ph.D. students and one post-doctoral fellow.
