Proud to continue our work with Coppin State University (MD). This time on a newly funded NSF HBCU-UP CREST planning grant that seeks to establish an Integrative Center for Emerging Contaminants.
The goal of the grant is to build the foundation for a center, envisioned to be funded by the Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) program, to perform research in emerging contaminants (EC), which are derived from industry, agriculture, and biotechnological and pharmaceutical sectors. Undergraduate students will be actively involved in this project by participating in research with faculty from various disciplines.
This project supports the goal of the CREST program to provide support to enhance the research capabilities of minority-serving institutions through the establishment of centers that effectively integrate education and research.
We are proud to evaluate the project formatively and summatively. This project is jointly funded by the HBCU-UP and CREST programs.
