A team of Rutgers researchers merged their ideas and technology with the support of research mentors to get the needed funds for developing a novel device capable of detecting the presence of viruses like SARS-CoV-2 in one’s breath.
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.
