Shapiro, Depireux team for series of grants to combat hearing loss

Associate Professor Benjamin Shapiro (BioE/ISR) and ISR Associate Research Scientist Didier Depireux recently have teamed up on several research grants related to delivering drug therapies to the inner ear. This is a new collaborative area for the two ISR researchers.

• A $50K, one-year University of Maryland Vice President for Research Seed Grant, “Magnetically Delivering Therapies to Inner Ear Diseases.”

• A $100K, 16-month Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program (MIPS) grant, “Magnetic Therapy Injection to Treat Hearing Loss.”

• A $5K, four-month I Rutel (OUHSC) subaward, “Magnetic Injector for Targeted Delivery of Therapeutics.”

• An $80K, one-year SZI-Clark Seed Funding grant to establish a collaboration with Dr. Diego Preciado of Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., “Magnetic Delivery of Drugs to the Middle Ear without Ear Drum Puncture.”

• A $100K, one-year TEDCO Maryland Innovation Initiative grant, "Treatment of Otitis Media without Ear Drum Puncture," with Dr. Diego Preciado of Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
