(May 31, 2019) Prof. Amanda Morris was one of three university faculty members named to a new Faculty Fellow program from the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation. The program brings together exceptional faculty leaders from across the university to strategize on ways to help the university capitalize on its strength and expand into new territory. This Faculty Fellows cohort also includes Masoud Agah, the Virginia Microelectronics Consortium Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Richard Helm, an associate professor of Biochemistry, and the three will work together to take on a University Shared Research Facilities initiative. The idea is to create centralized facilities which will be outfitted with advanced instrumentation, staffed by expert technicians, and broadly available to Virginia Tech faculty and external users.
