Adam W. Feinberg Wins Prestigious Innovation Award from National Institutes of Health

Carnegie Mellon University's Adam W. Feinberg was awarded a five-year, $2.25 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director's New Innovator Award to continue developing new biomaterials and cardiac tissue engineering strategies to help repair the human heart following injury and disease.

"I am extremely excited about this award because it will allow me to continue pursuing leading edge research designed to help regenerate and repair heart muscle and improve wound healing in a variety of biomedical arenas," said Feinberg, an assistant professor in CMU's departments of Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering.

Feinberg is one of 81 researchers nationwide receiving awards from the NIH to pursue visionary science that exhibits the potential to transform scientific fields and speed the conversion of lab research into improved health, under the High Risk-High Reward program supported through the NIH Common Fund.
