Active Research Projects
"CONSERVE is focused on facilitating the adoption of on‐farm solutions that enable the safe use of nontraditional irrigation water on food crops, and effectively reducing the nation’s agricultural water challenges that are exacerbated by climate change ."
"The Functional Genomic and Computational Assessment of Threats (Fun GCAT) program intends to develop new approaches and tools for the screening of nucleic acid sequences, and for the functional annotation and characterization of genes of concern, with the goal of preventing the accidental or intentional creation of a biological threat. "
"HASI will address the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation community's continuing need for modern application software that incorporates the latest understanding of physical phenomena and which executes effectively and efficiently on next generation high performance computers."
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major health problem in the US. It is estimated that over 3 million people live with disabilities caused by TBI with many suffering from disorders including depression or anxiety. The goal of this research proposal is to elucidate how TBI affects the function of peripheral systems and alters the microbiome and the resultant impact on TBI-induced affective disorders.
"Prometheus seeks to discover a minimal set of molecular biomarkers that would indicate, less than 24 hours after exposure to a pathogen, whether an individual will become contagious."
