Discovery Themes Update
The second round of Discovery Themes proposal winners were announced mid-August. They received 33 proposals involving more than 625 individuals representing multiple campuses and all 14 colleges. The second Request for Proposals focused on compelling challenges and associated big ideas in the areas of Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases, Materials for a Sustainable World and Food to Improve Health. FIC Co-Directors Steven Schwartz's and Steven Clinton's proposal, "Personalized Food and Nutritional Metabolic Profiling to Improve Health," was selected to move forward. Congratulations to all for their efforts.
