UMD Division of Research Announces Maryland Catalyst Fund New Direction 2019 Award Winners

The University of Maryland Division of Research has announced the winners for the inaugural year of the Maryland Catalyst Fund’s New Directions program.

The Maryland Catalyst Fund program – formerly known as the Faculty Incentive Program – is the University of Maryland’s internal faculty research support program and a key resource in the university’s overall effort to expand its research activity. These awards, made possible by funds from the Vice President for Research and matching contributions from individual units, support new research directions with the potential to attract funding, shape scholarship, impact society, and bring visibility to the UMD research enterprise.

There were a total of 12 grants awarded over two FY19 rounds of competition across two tracks - Proof of Concept and Limited External Grant Opportunity (LEGO) - from a pool of 34 applicants. Awarded PIs hailed from eight of UMD’s 12 colleges and schools.

Research abstracts for year’s awardees are listed below. For more information on The Maryland Catalyst Fund and its various programs please visit: https://research.umd.edu/development/MarylandCatalystFund
