News from the 4th Annual Industry-Academia Collaborative Workshop:
Consultants’ reports including funding recommendations for all FY 2012-13 Board of Regents Support Fund competitive programs are now available here. The Board is expected to consider these recommendations, as well as campus requests for matching funds to endow non-competitive professorships and first-generation undergraduate scholarships, at its meetings of April 24-25, 2013. Note that significant reductions in available BoRSF monies for new projects have resulted in cuts to the number of Priority I projects that can be funded. Consult the funding memo, posted with the reports, for information on the Priority One projects that are likely to receive funding.
Please join us for the 4th Annual Industry-Academia Collaborative Workshop, sponsored by Louisiana EPSCoR and the Louisiana Board of Regents on Tuesday, April 9 from 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM.
The workshop will begin with a luncheon speaker and continue with speakers from Battelle, Louisiana Economic Development, IBM, Albemarle, Sundrop Fuels, BASF and other throughout the day.

Researchers at Tulane University Health Sciences Center are pursuing research that promises to help in the treatment of glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, through an Industrial Ties Research Subprogram (ITRS) award. The goal of the research is to develop a drug delivery system to aid in the healing process related to implantation of a glaucoma drainage device. The research has shown great promise in the early stages, with several journal articles submitted for publication and evaluation of the patentability of the invention.
