Grants Support Faculty-Student Research of Polymeric Materials
Dr. Elizabeth Glogowski (Materials Science) has received $105,000 in grant money to continue student-faculty collaborative research related to new polymeric materials. The awards will fund two separate research projects, both of which include collaboration with undergraduate students. Learn more about student-faculty research.
Dr. Crispin Pierce (Environmental Public Health) received a sub-award for $10,000 from the University of Iowa. The project is titled "Environmental Health Sciences Research Center." Project activities will include sample collection and community education regarding sand mining. Undergraduates will be involved in the research. Learn more about external grant opportunities.
Lisa Schiller (Nursing) received an award for $8,749 from the Wisconsin Department of Public Health. The project is titled "Partners in Health and Safety." The goal is to build cultural competence among nursing undergraduates, promote agricultural health and safety, and provide health screening and immunizations for farm workers in Buffalo and Pepin counties. Undergraduates will be involved in the research. Learn more about external grant opportunities.
Two faculty recently received awards from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund. Dr. Stephen Drucker (Chemistry) received an award for $70,000 from the Undergraduate Research program for his project, "Spectroscopic Studies of Acrolein in Its T1(n,) Excited State." Dr. Liz Glogowski (Materials Science Center) received an award for $55,000 from Undergraduate New Investigator program for her project, "Designing 'Smart' Polymer Self-assembling Systems by Tuning Polymer Functionality and Architecture." Undergraduates will be involved in both research projects. Learn more about student/faculty research collaboration opportunities.
