D. J. Mullan, PhD, DE EPSCoR Director

In addition to the our major research agreements, the first NASA/EPSCoR funds for Research Infrastructure Development (RID) grants became available in Delaware in 2007. Three awards are made annually to junior researchers in the state. Up to 14 applications have been received each year from the academic research institutions in the state: Delaware State University, University of Delaware, and Wesley College. The successful applicants have come from Departments as varied as Biology, Marine Studies, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Plant Science, Astrobiology, Geology, Physics, and Environmental Studies. The faculty awardees typically go on to obtain promotion and tenure. NASA/EPSCoR Research awards, competed at the national level, have also been won by four teams from Delaware, in Marine Studies, Physics, and Chemical Engineering. In the latter case, the PI has recently been elected to the National Academy of Engineering and will conduct experiments on the International Space Station.
