Six Projects Receive 2022 ProFund Seed Grants

Campus far beyond

Stony Brook University’s inaugural ProFund Seed Grants — a program designed to fund interdisciplinary teams of researchers seeking to pursue medium- to large-scale, federal funding opportunities — received applications from 24 outstanding teams, involving about 90 faculty members spread across various colleges and schools. The proposals were all extremely innovative and competitive.

From this round, the Office of the Provost, in collaboration with the Office of the Vice President for Research, selected the following six applications for funding:

  • Advanced Materials Science Including Composites and 2D Materials
    PI: Surita Bhatia, Chemistry; co-PIs: Carlos Colosqui and Peter Khalifah
  • Building towards an SBU Center for Distributed Quantum Processing
    PI: Eden Figueroa, Physics and Astronomy; co-PIs: Tzu-Chieh Wei, Jennifer Cano, Leon Shterengas and Supartha Podder
  • Pilot Data for NIH $8.75 Million Stony Brook Superfund Research Center Grant: Spread of Environmental Contaminants from Storms Impacted by Climate Change
    PI: Jaymie Meliker, Family, Population and Preventive Medicine; co-PIs: Arjun Venkatesan, Carrie McDonough, Kevin Reed and Christopher Gobler
  • Materials Informatics for Next-generation Energy Storage Systems (MINES)
    PI: Nav Nidhi Rajput, Materials Science; co-PIs: Haibin Ling and Prateek Prasanna
  • Foundations for AI in Digital Histopathology
    PI: Joel Saltz, Biomedical Informatics; co-PI: Dimitris Samaras, Chao Chen, Kenneth Shroyer and Mehdi Damaghi
