CVM researchers are constantly in the process of planning, writing, and submitting grant applications. For NIH grants,they go through a receipt and referral, peer review, and awards process, all of which can take nearly a year. If the process is successful, the researcher’s institution receives a “notice of award” and the researcher receives a congratulatory e-mail. Dr. Mather Kannan has been awarded NIH grants for “MicroRNA Regulation of CD39” and “MicroRNA Regulation of CD38 and Chemokine Genes in Human Airway Smooth Muscle.”

Dr. Bruce Walcheck, professor in the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department; his co-principal investigator, Dr. Dan Kaufman, professor of medicine in the Minnesota Stem Cell Institute; and Bruce's coinvestigator Dr. Jimmy Wu, associate professor in the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department, were recently awarded a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research project grant totaling   approximately $2.25 million in total costs over five years.
