The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the University of Hawai'i, University of Nebraska, and the University of Vermont $20 million each through its Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) to improve research infrastructure in their states.
Scientists make breakthrough discovery with detection of gravitational waves
Several EPSCoR institutions played a role in this historical discovery: Louisiana State University, University of Mississippi, Montana State University, West Virginia University, University of Alabama at Huntsville, and Southern University and A&M College.
NIH awards more than $150 million for research on environmental influences on child health
NIH ECHO will enlist several IDeA institutions to create the IDeA States Pediatric Clinical Trials Network (ISPCTN). The purpose of the ISPCTN will be to provide medically underserved and rural populations with access to state-of-the art clinical trials, apply findings from relevant pediatric cohort studies to children in IDeA state locations, and build pediatric research capacity at a national level.
How to catch the biggest wave in the universe
National Public Radio (NPR) visits the LIGO lab in Livingston, Louisiana to learn more about the recent unprecedented discovery of gravitational waves.
The highlighted states and territories all have EPSCoR or IDeA programs.
