IUCRC Grantee Research Highlights

Please tell us about your latest research. Results from research are important for NSF funding as it allows us to demonstrate the viability of our programs. Please complete this template and email it to rdasgupt@nsf.gov. We want to hear about your research results even though your research may have ended years before the highlight was realized. Do not use future tense; we need to know results and not plans. Highlights are intended for the general public, congress, and journalists so try to refrain from technical terms if possible and write for a layman audience.
