Prof. Gao receives 2011 Affinito-Stewart Grant
Prof. Yingxin Gao was among eight Cornell faculty members to receive a 2011 Affinito-Stewart Grant from the President's Council of Cornell Women. The program aims to increase the long-term retention of women on the faculty by supporting the completion of research that is important in the tenure process. Winners were selected from 12 proposals reviewed for scholarly merit, research design, feasibility, and likely relevance to promotion to tenure. Prof. Gao received $7,000 for her study of "The Effects of Platelet Rich Plasma on Muscle Strain Healing in Rats."
