A new group of socially-cognizant roboticists will emerge from Rutgers thanks to a $3M National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) grant. The first major traineeship grant awarded to the School of Engineering will equip researchers and graduate students with insightful research that integrates technology domains of robotics, computer vision and machine learning with social and behavioral sciences.
In today’s competitive global environment, universities play an important role in inspiring diversity among new generations of entrepreneurs and innovators to improve the innovation ecosystem. Providing underrepresented researchers with access to opportunities and networks can bring the needed change to better reflect the diversity of our nation and to tip the scale toward equity and inclusion in innovation.
A mobile application developed by researchers Joel Caplan and Leslie Kennedy at Rutgers University aims to protect first responders and healthcare workers by identifying environmental factors that could be contagion vectors among COVID-19 positive cases.
A new state-of-the-art brain-imaging scanner for advanced exploration into the workings of the human brain - a Siemens PRISMA functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner - will soon be available to researchers at the Rutgers University Brain Imaging Center thanks to a National Science Foundation grant in combination with matching funds from Rutgers University.
