Academic Honors

Fellowship in Men’s Sexual Health—Andrew Draganski, Ph.D., a second-year postdoctoral fellow in the department of physiology and biophysics, has been awarded the first-ever fellowship in men’s sexual health by the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA). Under the mentorship of Kelvin Davies, Ph.D., and Joel Friedman, Ph.D., Dr. Draganski will use the $25,000 Pfizer-funded award to look at the role inflammation plays in the development of erectile dysfunction (ED) in diabetic animal models. As part of the proposed research project, his team will investigate whether nanoparticles containing curcumin (an anti-inflammatory agent), developed in Dr. Friedman’s laboratory, can reverse the activation of inflammatory pathways.
