Dr. Scott Tarry, NASA Nebraska EPSCoR

The NASA EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Development (RID) program has been especially influential in the enhancement of research capacity in the State of Nebraska. We have leveraged RID funds to seed research that is not only aligned with and supportive of NASA’s mission, but also focused on topics and disciplines that are important to Nebraska and its research universities. Eight of the projects seeded with RID funds since 2008 have gone on to win NASA EPSCoR Research funding at the national level. These projects have, in turn, then successfully competed for non-EPSCoR funds from NASA and other federal programs. For example, RID funds helped seed the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Biomechanics Research program which recently received the largest grant in university history, a $10 million award from NIH to support research and education, as well as $6 million in private funds to build a new research facility.
