National Institute of Health

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently awarded a $1.86 million grant to Dr. Thorsten-Lars Schmidt to develop molecular tools that help researchers to understand membrane proteins. The R35 or “Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award” (MIRA) provides promising researchers with a five-year funding for a broader research program, rather than funding a specific project. This gives investigators a great deal of freedom to develop new research directions as opportunities arise, rather than being bound to specific aims of a more narrow study. This flexibility makes this an extremely co...
