The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program has announced the recipients of its FY17 Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Track-2 awards. The RII Track-2 program is intended to build national research strengths in targeted focus areas by catalyzing collaborations across institutions in two or more EPSCoR jurisdictions. Dr. Rajesh Sani, a microbiologist and associate professor in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, has been awarded one of these projects. He will lead a consortium of experts from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Montana State University and the University of Oklahoma.…

A South Dakota research group has been selected to receive a NASA EPSCoR (Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) major research grant in the amount of $750,000. The project entitled, Wireless Body Area Network in Space: Development of Wireless Health Monitoring System with Flexible and Wearable Sensors is a joint effort between researchers from South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (SDSM&T), South Dakota State University (SDSU), University of South Dakota (USD) and collaborators at four NASA research centers. The proposed outcome of the research is to enable a wireless network system for real-time and multi-dimensional monitoring of the physiological parameters…

South Dakota BioSNTR researchers investigate how antibody therapeutics work Written by Christie Delfanian, SDSU Marketing & Communications Brookings, S.D. — Researchers from South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota are investigating how antibodies protect the body from influenza through the state’s BioSystems Networks and Translational Research (BioSNTR) center. What they learn will help Sioux Falls-based SAb Biotherapeutics (SAB) improve its influenza therapeutic and result in technologies that other biotechnology companies can use to evaluate product effectiveness. SAB’s immunotherapy platform was recognized by the World Health Organization as one of the top platforms for rapidly responding to infectious…

SMART ROBOT HAS SDSU TIES Printed in The Brookings Register October 25, 2016 – Designing a robot that can learn from its environment and thereby explore a new planet – that’s what a South Dakota State University assistant professor wants to do. Zhen Ni of the electrical engineering and computer science department is working with colleagues at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology on a grant titled ”Development of Intelligent Control System for Autonomous Robot Navigation for NASA Space Applications.” Through a Research Initialization Grant from the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research program, Ni presented a design…
