Posted in: Featured Awards

Please join us in congratulating the following MSU faculty and staff who received awards this month.

Ashuwin Vaidya Mathematical Sciences
REU Supplement: Collaborative Research: Dynamics of Surfactant – Amyloid-beta Protein Interactions during Self-assembly
National Science Foundation
This supplemental funding will support an undergraduate student who will conduct research in inter-disciplinary areas of biophysics including experimentation, computations and mathematical analysis. Dr. Vaidya’s original funded project focuses on biophysical understanding of amyloid-β (Aβ)-biological surfactants (SA) interactions, and simulating the temporal evolution of Aβ-SA dynamics, with two-way feedback between experiments and simulations.

Jane Ann Williams Office of International Engagement
Fulbright Gateway Orientation Program
Institute of International Education
This renewal will support the second year of the Fulbright Gateway Orientation Program, which brings up to 95 international Fulbright graduate students to campus for a week-long intensive program including cultural, academic, social and leadership workshops.
