Ambrose Cheung Receives National Scholar-Innovator Award

Geisel News reports on the Harrington Scholar-Innovator Award and Professor Cheung's work.

"The award is one of only a few given annually to top physician-scientists in the U.S. through a rigorous and highly competitive selection process.

The focus of Cheung’s project is to develop an adjuvant compound that can effectively neutralize MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureas or staph)—a commonly occurring collection of often virulent strains of bacteria that cause infections in different parts of the body and are more difficult to treat than most strains of antibiotic-sensitive staph because of their increasing resistance to antibiotics."
