FAMU Beats Harvard In Prestigious National Science Foundation Competition
Florida A & M University research team won first place in the prestigious National Science Foundation Innovation Corps Atlanta completion. The NSF I-Corps program underwrites research designed to encourage entrepreneurship and the commercialization of the technological discoveries.
Getting scientists out of the laboratory and enabling them to market their innovations and resulting intellectual property are a top priority of Timothy E. Moore, Ph.D., Vice President for Research. “Florida A&M University’s research enterprise effectively touches every aspect of our lives – regardless of where it originates in our University.
The FAMU team, led by Professor Y. “Ping” Hsieh, (Ph.D), housed in the FAMU Center for Water and Air Quality within the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences, competed against 20 teams from the eastern US, including Harvard University, to take the top spot. The project was entitled “Multi-Element Scanning Thermal Analysis” (MESTA).
