IUPUI has had a stellar year in attracting external funding for research. We reached an all-time high of $400.3 million! The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research recently issued its annual report,  From Innovation to Impact. The report highlights how strategic initiatives such as Translating Research into Practice (the TRIP Initiative), Signature Centers, RISE to the Challenge, STEM initiatives, and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute have supported our faculty success. I urge you to give yourself some holiday cheer by reading the inspiring stories of research work at IUPUI that is making an impact at home and around the world—every day. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to our colleagues, who submitted hundreds of research proposals to produce this level of awards, essentially a one-third increase over the previous record.

We've been very strategic about providing incentives and recognition for faculty research. One way is the Research Support Funds Grant (RSFG) awards. This internal grant program is designed to give a boost to support research projects and scholarly activities that are likely to be sustainable through external funding. It is one of several internal funding opportunities available to support faculty research.

Congratulations are in order for the fall 2010 RSFG award recipients, whose work will contribute to what we hope will be another record-breaking year in 2011:

  • Quyen Hoang, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • Amber Mosley, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • Molly D. Scheel, Medical and Molecular Genetics
