UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER
This supplemental request is focused on providing financial support for an additional post-doctoral fellow to accelerate the rate of scientific progress of the funded parent grant research. This 2 year supplement is requesting salary and research supply support for an identified post-doctoral fellow, who has been in my lab for 2 years studying the role of platelets in vascular inflammation and immune cell trafficking. However, he has not been funded by, or had his research time dedicated to, this or other NIH funded research projects. If funded, his efforts will be directed towards the study of platelets in transplant rejection.
