Ohio State Wins Ohio Research Scholars Program Award in Technology

ORISadmin Faculty Awards, General, Grants

The Ohio Department of Development has announced that The Ohio State University will receive an Ohio Research Scholars Program award totaling over $18 million to fund its proposal, Technology-Enabling and Emergent Materials.

The award funds two endowed Ohio Research Scholars positions for The Ohio State University, a Nanoscale Materials Microscopist and a Molecular Chemist; one Ohio Research Scholar at University of Dayton, a Multi-scale Composites Processing Chair; and one Ohio Research Scholar at University of Akron, a Polymer/Biomolecular Engineer. In addition, the award allows Ohio State to fund internally a third OSU Ohio Research Scholar, a Molecular Biochemist.

These five Ohio Research Scholars will work together in a unique research cluster to pioneer revolutionary approaches to materials development, leveraging the existing materials science strengths of the three partner universities. The OSU Institute for Materials Research was integral to the success of this proposal, having coordinated the proposal development process. IMR will continue to provide leadership with this program through coordination the collaborative projects undertaken by this cluster of Scholars.
