The National Institutes of Health has awarded a five-year, $3.3 million grant to UCI’s Qing Nie, Chancellor’s Professor of mathematics and developmental & cell biology; Maksim Plikus, associate professor of developmental & cell biology; and Xing Dai, professor of biological chemistry.

They will blend cutting-edge, single-cell techniques with mathematical modeling to study wound healing, with the goal of integrating into one modeling framework all major skin cell types to allow computational prediction of the elusive conditions necessary for regeneration.

The research also will receive support from UCI’s NSF-Simons Center for Multiscale Cell Fate Research, which earlier this year garnered $10 million in funding – half from the National Science Foundation and half from the Simons Foundation.
