Dr. Patricia Hynes, NM EPSCoR Director, New Mexico State University

New Mexico was admitted into the congressionally mandated NASA EPSCoR program in 2007. NASA EPSCoR supports aerospace research throughout New Mexico. Technical areas include but are not limited to low-earth orbit vehicle and testing programs, micro-gravity research, deep space exploration and sensor networks. Other technical areas are radio astronomical observation, solar observation, and space communications. EPSCoR is focused on enabling the growth of competitive research programs that stimulate economic growth in New Mexico. EPSCoR focuses on supporting our institutions at the highest level of education by strengthening their research capabilities as well as providing opportunities that attract and prepare increasing numbers of students for high technology careers within the state. Through our EPSCoR programs we are striving to significantly increase the research experiences for students, to improve our research labs and facilities, and to support interdisciplinary research collaborations across colleges, research units and with NASA Centers. The following reports are examples of the outstanding research being conducted at our universities and its impact.
