HONOLULU (AP) - A University of Hawaii researcher has won a federal grant totaling more than $104,000 for a sepsis treatment study.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://is.gd/IZfu1l) reports the study aims to look at whether Hawaii waters can be used to ward off sepsis, a critical complication of infection.

The recipient of the National Institutes of Health grant is Felix Ikuomola, whose research is based on understanding how injury or damage to certain cells can cause widened pores in the vascular lining, which can lead to sepsis.

Ikuomola is a PhD candidate in clinical research at the John A. Burns School of Medicine. He also is a graduate research assistant at the UH Cancer Center.
