SWOSU's Hubin Receives Large Biomedical Research Grant
Southwestern Oklahoma State University Assistant Professor Dr. Tim Hubin in Weatherford has received a $126,216 grant for biomedical research from the Oklahoma IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (OK-INBRE) and the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.
The award is administered through the National Institutes of Health.
Hubin's grant-entitled "Development and Screening of Transition Metal Complexes as CXCR4 Antagonists"-in part, supports scientific research that will enhance the professional and scholarly development of faculty at predominantly undergraduate institutions. This program allows undergraduate students first-hand experience working in biomedical research laboratories.
Hubin said promising students are exposed to the world of research and this research program is a mechanism for increasing the applicant pool for Oklahoma's graduate programs in biomedical research.
Dr. Hubin also received $2,200 during the summer from a summer mentorship grant funded by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The mentorship grant provided much needed supplies for the mentor's laboratory.
