Rong is Awarded Charles H. Hood Foundation Grant

Rong Yang, PhD, instructor in Anesthesiology, has been awarded the Charles H. Hood Foundation grant to continue her research on otitis media. The grant will allow Dr. Yang to develop nanoparticles to treat middle ear infections without the need for antibiotics. The two-year, $150,000 Child Health Research Award is intended to support newly independent faculty, provide the opportunity to demonstrate creativity, and assist in the transition to other sources of research funding. The Charles H. Hood Foundation was incorporated in 1942 to improve the health and quality of life for children through grant support of New England-based pediatric researchers. ​​
