Shin, MD was fortunate to be awarded several institutional grants as well as the prestigious AFSH/ASSH Basic Science Grant in 2016 for a project titled “Optimizing the Regenerative Capacities of the Nerve Allograft”.  The pilot data obtained from these grants formed the foundation of a successfully funded RO1 NIH grant submission in early 2018.
