Dr. Martha Bhattacharya Receives Grant to Advance Undergraduate Research Program

Dec. 4, 2020


Congratulations to Dr. Martha Bhattacharya. Martha received a $3,000 award from the Arthur L. and Lee G. Herbst Endowment for Innovation and the Science Dean’s Innovation and Education Fund. Martha’s proposal, “Enhancing a Vertically Integrated Project course in Brain Communication Networks” was selected by The College of Science Faculty Advisory Committee. The purpose of the funding program is to enable College of Science faculty to advance their research programs while also creating opportunities for undergraduate students to gain research experience. Martha plans to use the funds for her new course-based undergraduate research experience that she is offering in Spring 2021. Martha purchase dissection tools and supplies for students to do experiments with Drosophila brains. Congratulations and well deserved, Martha!
