Researcher will study wound healing



BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU AgCenter assistant professor Dan Hayes has been awarded a $400,000 Career Award grant from the National Science Foundation.

The five-year grant will allow Hayes to continue research in nanotechnology as well as provide educational opportunities for graduate and undergraduate university students and younger students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

The grant project involves using a microRNA delivery technique to improve the control of wound healing and tissue repair processes.
