Marr awarded Rustgi Family Fund grant

Kieren Marr, professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases and associate vice chair for innovation and commercialization, along with Supirya Munshaw from the Carey Business School, was recently awarded a $2,500 Rustgi Fund grant for their study “Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Medical Research.”

The Rustgi Family Fund in Entrepreneurship was established in honor of Motil Lal and Kamla Rustgi, the parents of Drs. Vinod K. Rustgi and Anil K. Rustgi. Dr. Vinod Rustgi received his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and his Master of Business Administration degree from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. The purpose of this endowment is to advance the study of entrepreneurship within the Carey Business School. The fund will provide annual awards for faculty research, with preference for interdisciplinary projects.

Drs. Marr and Munshaw aim to study barriers to innovation within U.S. schools of medicine that garner high-level federal research funding. Please look for upcoming emails containing a short research survey and take a minute to participate.
