The STE Lab conducts evaluation of R&D programs and projects funded primarily by NSF and NIH. Researchers associated with the lab are currently evaluating several NSF EPSCoR programs including those including programs in Alaska, Kansas, New Hampshire and Maine. Researchers also evaluate NSF IGERT and ERC programs as well as NIH INBRE and CCTS programs. Lab members involved in the evaluations include Eric Welch, Myoung Jin Lee and Mary Feeney.
The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) consortium is funded by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Originally established by NSF in 1979, EPSCoR supports the development of scientific infrastructure that enhances in a state science and engineering (S&E) capacity.
The NSF’s IGERT program is designed to develop university-based programs for graduate education and training that integrate collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
The Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Branch seeks to increase the number of highly-trained underrepresented biomedical and behavioral scientists in leadership positions to significantly impact the health-related research needs of the nation.
