Spring 2016 IMR Facility Grants Awards
Five new research projects were awarded by the IMR for a total investment of $10,000 in nascent materials research. The five projects support eight researchers from four different departments within the College of Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences.
This seed funding will begin July 1, 2016. Congratulations to the research teams awarded IMR Facility Grants in this last round of competitive funding!
