NYIT biologist receives NIH support for bone-healing research


(New York Institute of Technology) The United States’ National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) Professor of Life Sciences Michael Hadjiargyrou, Ph.D., a multi-year grant to study a newly discovered musculoskeletal specific gene, Mustn1, and to determine its role in cartilage regeneration and skeletal repair. Hadjiargyrou’s research will also begin to elucidate a new and as yet uncharacterized protein family important for cartilage and bone biology.
