We work hard to bring you the stories about the life science community in North Carolina. Every once in a while, we add a little news of our own. Read some of those stories below, or check out some of our perspectives on our staff blog.
[Editor's note from Tracey du Laney, Ph.D., the North Carolina Biotechnology Center’s senior director of Science and Technology Development, who oversees this grant: This line of research exemplifies what a Flash Grant is all about.

It could lead to new therapeutics to treat disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). DIC results not just from sepsis and cancer, but also has emerged as a life-threatening condition with COVID-19.
