You are invited to a reception on Friday, Nov. 12, at 11 a.m. to celebrate the new INBRE grant to the Department of Biology. The program will be held in the Cedar Room of the Nebraskan Student Union. Drs. Julie Shaffer, Kim Carlson, Janet Steele and Paul Twigg each worked to develop research proposals as part of a consortium led by UNMC. With a $252.364 subcontract in the first year of a five-year project, these four faculty members will be able to conduct research while creating important research experiences for undergraduate students.
Success on major grants like this comes from the hard work of people directly and indirectly involved in the project. We are proud that external agencies recognize the quality of UNK faculty, and we hope you will join us in celebrating these achievements.
