O’Toole Receives Prestigious NIH MERIT Award

Posted: August 12th, 2014 by Kenneth D. Hertel

Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth microbiologist George O’Toole has received a MERIT award from the National Institutes of Health that will provide up to 10 years of funding for his research on bacterial biofilms.

MERIT (Method to Extend Research in Time) grants are awarded by the NIH to researchers whose work has already yielded significant results and who it believes will continue to make progress toward understanding important questions in biomedical research.

The program is intended to allow accomplished researchers more freedom and flexibility in their work, and O’Toole is excited about the long-term nature of the award. “It’s not often that you are given such a large window of time,” he says. “I think it’s really going to allow us to take a little more risk.” Read the rest of this entry »
