Marvin Doyley receives two University Research Awards

Congratulations to Marvin Doyley who will receive two University Research Awards this year! University Research Awards, previously known as Provost Multidisciplinary Awards, provide seed money on a competitive basis for innovative research projects that are likely to attract external support when sufficiently developed. See below for project descriptions: 

Molecular Imaging of Arterial Occlusion in Mice: Vyacheslav A. Korshunov, Associate Professor of Medicine, and Marvin Doyley, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. To facilitate high throughput analyses of pathological arterial remodeling in genetically manipulated or pharmacologically treated mice and produce new therapeutic approaches for treating cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

Early Detection of Chronic Kidney Disease: George J. Schwartz, Professor of Pediatrics; Marvin M. Doyley, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Jeffery M. Purkerson, Research Assistant Professor of Pediatrics. To better understand the pathophysiology of having too much acid in the blood (acidosis) and how it may cause the kidney to become damaged. The study will determine whether we can ameliorate some of the kidney damage induced by acidosis and whether acute correction of the acidosis with sodium bicarbonate therapy can reverse the acid-induced increases in kidney stiffness, calcium excretion, and inflammation.
