Chemistry Department Received Increased NIH Funding in 2016


Best, Calhoun, Jenkins

In 2016, the National Institutes of Health increased support for projects in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement Taylor Eighmy attributes this, in part, to the creation of a number of new resources and development opportunities through the Office of Research and Engagement which specifically support NIH researchers and assist them in the submission of strong proposals.

Both Jenkins and Best were also NSF CAREER awardees in 2013 and 2010.

“We are thrilled to see so many new NIH awards in the Department of Chemistry,” said Eighmy. “These calculated efforts are beginning to have a noticeable impact on our researchers’ success with NIH, and we hope this trend continues.”
