Dear Panther Family,
We’ve announced the winners of Georgia State’s first-ever Research Innovation and Scholarly Excellence (RISE) challenge! Teams of our renowned faculty — nearly 50 university experts across different fields — will conduct research under four dynamic research hubs, and each group will receive one-time seed funding of up to $750,000 over the course of one year to fund their work.
As one of the most diverse institutions in the nation, Georgia State is uniquely positioned to address complex societal problems through a lens of equity and access.
Each research hub will bring together some of the top scholars in fields as diverse as astronomy, criminal justice, neuroscience, law and virology. The research teams will partner with government agencies, private industry, foundations, nonprofits and philanthropic sponsors.
The new university initiative establishes interdisciplinary research hubs to address some of society’s most pressing issues, including pandemic preparedness, climate solutions, crime victim protection, equity and access, and public health.
Learn more about RISE and meet the awardees.
