Research Dollars Granted to U of A

NWA Daily

The National Science Foundation has awarded a $6.1m grant to the U of A to establish a research institute focused on virology and virus ecology.

  • Commissioned work: $6.1m should be enough to get the ball rolling on the new virus study. The goal of the research work is to "establish fundamental 'rules of life,'" that apply to all viruses or a family of them.
  • Led by example: The research is led by three professors at the U of A with help from state and international institutions. If it's successful, you can expect multiple other labs and institutions to follow in the footsteps of what's discovered here in Arkansas.
