UConn Researchers Awarded $950,000 In State Grants

Daniel Rosenberg and Bradley Bolling, two researchers at NEC member the University of Connecticut, have been awarded close to $950,000 in grants from the state’s Biomedical Research Trust Fund. Both researchers were awarded grants for their study of disease and chronic illnesses linked with tobacco use.

Daniel Rosenberg, professor of medicine in the UConn Health Center’s Department of Genetics and Development Biology, is facilitating a study comparing colon biopsies and blood specimens of smokers to those of non-smokers.

The second grant recipient, Bradley Bolling, an assistant professor in UConn’s Department of Nutritional Science at the college of Agriculture and Natural resources, decided to focus his study on antioxidants’ impact on cardiovascular disease.
