that PhD candidate Kimberly Denman is a recipient of the Graduate School’s 2023-2024 Alumni Grants for Graduate Research and Scholarship (AGGRS).

The AGGRS provides post candidacy and terminal master’s degree candidates with small grants of up to $5,000. Eligible applications are reviewed by the Graduate School Awards Committee, which is made up of faculty from various disciplines, and then award recommendations are made by the committee to the Dean of the Graduate School for the final decision.

The funding Denman won is going toward the last part of her graduate research. The title of her project is “DDR1 and postmenopausal bone.” She will use the funding to analyze DDR1 expression in wild type ovariectomized mouse long bones, and to analyze collagen quality and organization in DDR1 wild type and knock out ovariectomized mouse femurs.  

Congratulations to Kimberly Denman on this exciting achievement!
