Everyone, Attached is the September Research Report - please join me in congratulating the new awardees and in wishing those who've submitted proposals well in their endeavors. Also attached for your information is a quick pictorial recap of the grant funding the School of Health Professions faculty received during fiscal year. The total reflects projects that were ACTIVE during the period 7/1-6/30 and includes both projects with SHP faculty as the PIs and those whose PIs were from other colleges/schools, but in which our faculty collaborated. As you will see, we are spreading our grant request "network" further afield than just one or two sponsors; the more diversified our submissions, the more likely we are to receive funding these days. Congratulations to all on a job VERY well done! P. Kevin Rudeen Director of Research
