Dear Members of the UO Research Community:
Earlier this week, the Trump Administration released a detailed budget recommendation for FY18 titled “A New Foundation for American Greatness.” The document adds flesh to the so-called “skinny budget” that was released in March. Details on the overall budget can be found here.
Dear Members of the UO Research Community,
The University of Oregon’s Center on Teaching and Learning — working in partnership with Florida State University’s Florida Center for Reading Research and RMC Research Corporation — has received a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help improve literacy through evidence-based interventions and assessments. The new technical assistance center, which launched officially in October, will support schools across the country to translate and apply existing research to help students with disabilities attain full literacy skills.
A recently created UO fundraising team will focus on research, innovation and strategic initiatives. Reporting jointly to the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and University Advancement, the Strategic Initiatives, Research and Innovation (SIRI) team is led by Matt Hutter, senior director of development, research, innovation and strategic initiatives. Hutter is also responsible for cultivating key corporate partners for the UO.
Do you or your students plan to conduct research with human subjects this summer or fall? Have questions about submitting an application to the UO IRB (Institutional Review Board) or how to develop a protocol?
Shannon Boettcher, an associate professor in the University of Oregon Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has received a Small Innovative Projects in Solar (SIPS) award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative.
Boettcher’s research focuses on harnessing the power of the sun, which provides a staggering amount of energy. The gap between solar energy’s potential and our current utilization of it is limited in part by the cost of making high-efficiency solar cells.
Science is filled with stories of accidental discoveries. Just ask the founders of the UO spinout SupraSensor Technologies.
Their story recently won them a spot on National Public Radio's shortlist for the Golden Mole Award, which recognizes serendipity in science.
Research at the University of Oregon
Research at the UO encompasses thousands of scholarly, scientific, and creative endeavors. The Office of the Vice President for Research & Innovation (OVPRI) provides services and resources in support of research and discovery at the University of Oregon.
