NIH awards UW-La Crosse researcher $338k to study blood clot prevention

A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse researcher, Scott Cooper, PhD, received a $338,000 grant to advance his research on the prevention of blood clots to help stop heart attacks and strokes, according to Coulee News.

The grant will also be used to pay for undergraduates to participate in Dr. Cooper's lab.,

Dr. Cooper, biology professor at UW-La Crosse, has been studying ground squirrels to understand how they prevent their blood from clotting when they hibernate, which could lead to insights into how to prevent blood from clotting in humans.

"Grants like Dr. Cooper's provide significant financial support for students to actively participate in the innovation and discovery taking place through faculty's research," Melissa Nielsen, UW-La Crosse director of research and sponsored programs, told Coulee News.
