Drs. Bin Feng and David Pierce Awarded a National Science Foundation Grant


Professors Feng (PI) and Pierce (Co-PI) win award from NSF for $432,481. The collaborative project, “Understanding the Multiscale Mechanics of Nerve Endings to Address Visceral Pain” aims to understand the biomechanics of colorectal tissue and the micromechanical environment surrounding sensory nerve endings in both naïve colorectums and those with regenerated nerve endings (TNBS-treated). This project will investigate highly understudied biomechanical factors that could play critical roles in the persistence of visceral pain in patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.
