It is official! Prof. Mukherjee is one of the recipients of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Trailblazer Award for new and early career faculty. The award is administered through the NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. This award recognizes our proposed research efforts in developing in silico technologies for advancing diagnosis and treatment of embolic strokes. Stroke continues to be a major cause of death and disability worldwide. Latest statistics form the American Heart Association reveal that a stroke is reported in the United States approximately around every 40 seconds. FLOWLab will be working on this along with collaborators from AMC Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. We thank the National Institutes of Health for their generosity and support - especially at this early stage for Prof. Mukherjee. We are truly grateful to have been given this opportunity.
