Grant and Award Announcement
The UTA Alumni Association, Architecture Chapter, helped celebrate the opening of the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs’ (CAPPA) new Community Design Lab with a generous gift to support student-led projects. The alumni group donated $25,000 to the Design Build Program, which facilitates student-led projects in the Dallas, Arlington and Fort Worth communities.
Researchers from The University of Texas at Arlington and Texas A&M University have received a three-year, $500,000 grant from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to conduct experiments and simulations of liquid metal heat pipes (LMHPs) for micro nuclear reactors.
Marking its 30th anniversary and her enduring interest and support, philanthropist Darlene Shiley has given a $10 million gift for the clinical space expansion of the Shiley Eye Institute at UC San Diego Health.
The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) has been awarded $250,000 from KKR Grants to support the Career Skills Academy enhancing employment and advancement opportunities for public health graduate students from low- to moderate-income communities.
A University of Central Florida researcher will be leading a new project to use nanotechnology to advance research in the detection and mitigation of emerging animal-borne infectious diseases. The project is funded by a $50,000 grant from national philanthropic foundation Research Corporation for Science Advancement and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The funding is part of an initiative called Scialog Mitigating Zoonotic Threats.
With an $8 million grant from the NIH, the next stage of the THINKER project — called THINKER-NEXT — will aim to provide a comprehensive view of the risks and benefits of transplanting HCV-infected kidneys into non-infected patients
A $1.5 million emergency grant is enabling UC Riverside scientists to find plants impervious to Huanglongbing, a disease threatening America’s citrus fruit supply.
A team of researchers from A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and Institute of Bioengineering and Bioimaging (IBB), together with the National University of Singapore Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine), was awarded a contract from the prestigious Wellcome Leap R3 Programme to build the next generation of mRNA technology.
Given the diverse components of soil — minerals, organic matter, living organisms, gasses and water — scientists have struggled for decades to figure out the ecology and function of soil microorganisms.
Colorado State University has received a $1.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Alliance for Water Innovation. They will develop low-cost, environmentally benign materials that function as chemical sorbents, similar to sponges, for the precise removal and recovery of certain nutrients – mainly phosphate, ammonium and nitrate – from municipal and agricultural wastewaters.
Kilchberg/Switzerland: Chronic and often painful rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) disable millions of people in the EU and worldwide . Research is critical to better understand more than 200 of these conditions. Researchers often need to overcome roadblocks as they try to develop better prevention and treatments strategies. Because research support varies across Europe, the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology (EULAR) has launched a new rapid funding support programme to help researchers overcome smaller resource gaps that may stall necessary research on the needs of people with RMDs.
