Professor Iqbal Hamza was recently awarded a renewal of his NIH R01 grant titled "The Transport of Nutritional Heme in Animal Development" for $2,382,501 over 5 years. 
The main focus of this grant is to identify how humans transport iron into their body by using a genetic and biochemical approach in mice, zebrafish, and human stem cells. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder in the world and a top ten risk factor for losing healthy years of life in developed and developing countries.
