MONROE - A pharmacy professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe has received around $50,000 in grant funding for his efforts in breast cancer research.

The university says that Yong-Yu Liu, M.D., Ph.D., submitted a grant proposal to the Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience and was one of 16 funded proposals out of a total of 150 proposals submitted from 27 countries.

Liu is an assistant professor of pharmacology in ULM's Basic Pharmaceutical Sciences Department, where he has taught for six years.

His proposal deals with glycoscience, which is the study of complex carbohydrates, or glycans.

Liu will research how glycans affect cell functions and how they cause diseases.
