Prof. Vicky Doan-Nguyen awarded $40K through OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program

The Ohio State University this week announced seven innovative materials research projects will receive a total of $300,000 in funding through the OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program.

The program seeds and advances excellence in materials research of varying scopes.  It is jointly funded and managed by the Institute for Materials Research (IMR), Center for Emergent Materials (CEM) and Center for Exploration of Novel Complex Materials (ENCOMM).  The program furthers IMR's mission to nurture, grow and support excellence in materials research. The enhanced OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program became available to the Ohio State materials community on Winter 2011.

This year, one Multidisciplinary Team Building Grant (MTBG) and six Exploratory Materials Research Grant (EMRG) awards were selected after a thorough internal and external review. This grant assists in enabling nascent and innovative materials research to emerge to the point of being competitive for external funding.  Each award is $40,000.

Prinicipal Investigator:  Vicky Doan-Nguyen, joint appointment in Materials Science and Engineering and Mechancial and Aerospace Engineering
