New ITTC Annual Report is Online
By Michelle Ward
We are recognizing students and their efforts throughout this year's Annual Report . At ITTC, our students apply what they are learning in the classroom to research. They gain practical experience by conducting experiments, analyzing data, and performing other necessary, but sometimes tedious, research. Critical to the success of ITTC, students are often our unsung heroes.
Not to be outdone, ITTC faculty researchers earned top honors. ITTC investigator Jun "Luke" Huan spearheaded a $4.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. It will provide a 20-fold boost in computing power to ITTC's Bioinformatics Computing Facility. Huan was highlighted last year for receiving a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. This year ITTC researcher Prasad Kulkarni received the prestigious CAREER award to support his ongoing efforts to integrate teaching and research. At ITTC, Kulkarni is building more secure and better performing software systems.
Technology maturation and commercialization are natural outgrowths of innovative ITTC research. This maturation process allows us to prepare roll-out ready technologies. It is not enough to create transformative technologies; we need to get them into the hands of Kansas businesses and entrepreneurs. ITTC also offers applied research, technical consulting, product development, and other services to assist Kansans with IT challenges and opportunities.
