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.…
