NMSU hosts Research Rallies to highlight achievements
We are pleased to invite you to the first Research Rally of the fall semester to be held on Wednesday, August 29, at 9:00 a.m. in room 104 at O’Donnell Hall. The rally will honor Satyajayant Misra of the Department of Computer Science, one of the first eleven recipients of a National Science Foundation INSPIRE award under its CREATIV program. The Integrated NSF Support Promoting Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) initiative was established to address some of the most complicated and pressing scientific problems that lie at the intersections of traditional disciplines. Creative Research Awards for Transformative Interdisciplinary Ventures (CREATIV) is a pilot grant program under the INSPIRE initiative.
After introductory remarks by Vice President Chaitanya and President Couture, principal investigator Dr. Misra and his co-investigators, Hong Huang of the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Graciela Unguez of the Department of Biology, will present an overview of their project, CREATIV: Towards Ubiquitous Adoption of Wireless Sensor Networks in Experimental Biology Research. At 9:30, they will be available to answer questions. Light refreshments will be served after the presentation.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, August 29.
(The Office of the Vice President for Research hosts a series of Research Rallies to inform the university community and stakeholders within the State of New Mexico about NMSU’s research successes and contributions. These Rallies honor faculty and staff investigators for significant externally-funded projects and are designed to elevate awareness about NMSU’s research efforts and its impact on the New Mexico community and elsewhere.)
Tentatively and subject to change, all Research Rallies will be at 9:00 am in O’Donnell Hall, room 104; since the spring class schedule is not yet available, the location for the spring events is very tentative.
In late 2010, New Mexico State University began what has become a tradition of recognizing significant research advances involving lead NMSU research faculty members.
“We are very proud to be doing these Research Rallies here at New Mexico State University. We’re proud of our faculty researchers; we’re proud of our status as a research university,” said NMSU President Barbara Couture. “We want to let the public know what important, game-changing research is being done right here at New Mexico State University. We have outstanding researchers here who work tirelessly on important, meaningful and hands-on research and development projects.”
The rallies are scheduled when the university has significant developments in research activity to announce.
