Researchers from The U receive NASA EPSCoR funding
NASA EPSCoR strengthens the research capabilities of states that have not in the past participated equally in competitive aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. EPSCoR provides eligible jurisdictions with funding to develop a more competitive research base within their jurisdiction and member academic institutions. Seven federal agencies conduct EPSCoR programs. Researchers or research groups from USD receiving 2009 seed grants from South Dakota NASA EPSCoR are:
Chaoyang Jiang, department of chemistry, “Robust and Lightweight SERS Active Nanocomposites for Materials Detection in Planetary Explorations,” Space Science and Astrobiology Division, NASA Ames Research Center.
