The Wound Healing Society has selected materials science and engineering postdoctoral scholar Elayaraja Kolanthai as one of eight recipients of its Young Investigator Award. As a recipient, Kolanthai is invited to present his research on oxide nano particles during the Young Investigator Session at the 2023 WHS annual meeting.

The event will take place at the Gaylord National Resort and Concention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, during the final week of April. Kolanthai will receive a $500 stipend for his presentation, and if his presentation is selected as one of the top four, he will receive an additional $500. If his presentation places first, he will be invited to present at the annual meeting of the European Tissue and Repair Society.

Kolanthai is a postdoctoral scholar for the Nanobiomaterials Manufacturing Laboratory, which is managed by Professor Sudipta Seal. He joined the lab in 2020.

The purpose of the Young Investigator Award is to further the research in the area of wound healing by recognizing the outstanding work of young researchers.
