The University of Minnesota’s Office of the Vice President for Research has announced the Research Infrastructure Investment Program: 2020 Awards. The program awards funding to projects supporting transdisciplinary research and collaboration across the U’s colleges and campuses.

Nearly $2.3 million was awarded to 12 research projects, reaching 12 departments, units, and centers, six colleges, and two campuses. Supporting colleges or centers provide one-to-one matching funds for each award. Including matching funds, more than $6.5 million in total funds were awarded this year.

Awards will support research infrastructure, facilities, and support services over a variety of University research areas, including support for a new, 3T MRI system in the College of Veterinary Medicine and enhancements to the laboratory for stream and floodplain science at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, part of the College of Science and Engineering.
