Professor Sarah Stoll Earns NIH and NSF Research Grants
The Twin Projects Promise Applications in Medicine and Nanomaterials
Professor Sarah L. Stoll, from Georgetown’s Department of Chemistry, has been awarded two 3-year research grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, totaling nearly $900,000.
Dr. Stoll’s NIH project, “Manganese cluster-based nano beads for combined T1-T2 contrast agents,” will enable her lab to develop new contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which could benefit patients who cannot tolerate traditional MRI reagents.
The NSF grant will support the Stoll Research Group to explore “Phase Control in Rare Earth Chalcogenide Nanomaterials,” work that will allow the preparation of nanomaterials with impressive luminescent and magnetic properties with a wide array of applications.
Congratulations to Professor Stoll and her team!
