Posted by Jenna Ray on Friday, Jan. 17, 2014

Two University of Minnesota, Morris faculty members received awards in the fall grant round of the University of Minnesota Grant-in-Aid of Research, Artistry and Scholarship Program. Administered through the Office of the Vice President for Research, Grant-in-Aid Program (GIA) funds are awarded in the belief that the quality of faculty research and artistic endeavors is a major determinant of the overall vitality of the institution. The grants are not meant to provide sole support for research activities rather, they are intended to act as seed money for developing projects.

Michael Ceballos, assistant professor biology, Epilepsy and Herpevirus Infection

Rachel Gibbons, assistant professor biology, Investigating the Influence of CD80/B7-H1 Signaling on Anti-Tumor Immune Responses Mediated by CD8+ T Cells
