January 23, 2017View for printing

A Montana State University researcher and her colleagues have received a $5.2 million grant to push the boundaries of a new approach for treating flu and other fast-evolving viruses that resist traditional vaccines.

Connie B. Chang, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in MSU's College of Engineering, will receive $1.3 million of the funding, which was awarded in October by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an independent agency of the U.S. Department of Defense that funds "high-risk, high-reward" projects.
