Paul Yu, MD, PhD, of the MGH Cardiology Division, has received a Technology Investigation Award from the Massachusetts Technology Transfer Center for his proposal, "The Role of Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) Signaling in Calcific Vascular Disease." This $40,000 award will help fund studies on the role of BMP signaling in atherosclerotic and calcific vascular disease and to assess the commercial potential of therapies that inhibit BMP signaling.
