SD EPSCoR Impacts for the week of January 25, 2018:

  • Reminder: We are asking SD EPSCoR participants to complete our participant survey. The survey looks at collaborations amongst EPSCoR participants, as well as the nature of these collaborations. This information is critical to the success of SD EPSCoR as the National Science Foundation has stressed in past evaluations the importance of improving on this data. Please complete the survey by Wednesday, Feb 7. If you are an SD EPSCoR participant you should have received emails notifying you of the survey, but if you are unsure if you should participate or have any concerns please contact Elizabeth at to confirm. The SD EPSCoR leadership team thanks you for your support!
  • Join Education Director of the SD Discovery Center and SD EPSCoR Education Specialist Dr. Rhea Waldman tomorrow (Jan. 26) on campus at SDSU to learn how the outreach network can help you and your lab increase funding chances by strengthening broader impacts and improving your science communications skills. The event will take place at Morrill Hall (SAD) 104 and kick-off at noon and run till 2:30 p.m. with a social hour/ science communication fellowship showcase.
  • The January edition of the SD EPSCoR Newsletter has been posted online. This month’s issue highlights a DNA/RNA Sequencing facility here in South Dakota and profiles a software program created by a BioSNTR researcher that helps model and visualize gene expression networks.
