The University of Alabama at Birmingham has been awarded four National Science Foundation (NSF) EPSCoR RII Track 2 grants totaling $5.4 million in nanotechnology and basic neuroscience studies. In addition, a fifth EPSCoR grant has been awarded to research teams representing the University of Alabama and the University of Mississippi. These five grants set a record, no other EPSCoR state has ever had five of the EPSCoR RII Track 2 grants. Jeff Hansen, a reporter for UAB, recently published an article on the UAB website detailing the success of these teams and providing an overview of the research to be conducted.
