Florida Atlantic University recently received a $1 million gift from Dr. Walter and Lalita Janke to establish the Walter and Lalita Janke Innovations in Sustainability Science Research Fund.
FAU researchers have developed a group of proteins called tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases designed as specific inhibitors of selected MMP targets that could potentially treat osteoarthritis and cancer.
Waseem Asghar, Ph.D. received the award for his work on developing a new diagnostic biosensing platform that could be used to remotely detect and determine treatment options for HIV and other diseases.
