Three Department of Nuclear Engineering faculty members recently received funding from the US DoE’s Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP), which seeks to maintain US leadership in nuclear research across the country. This year, the NEUP awarded more than $28.5 million to support 40 university-led nuclear energy research projects, with nearly $2.4 million going to UT-led research.
Professor Richard Wood, Assistant Professor and Southern Company Faculty Fellow Jamie Coble, and Associate Professor and Pietro F. Pasqua Fellow Maik Lang each received grants of approximately $800,000 to pursue their research.
Associate Professor Sadie Hutson was one of 63 nurse practitioner leaders inducted as a Fellow in the American Association of Nurse Practitioners in June 2019. Hutson is assistant dean of graduate programs. Previously, she served as coordinator for the undergraduate Nursing Honors program from 2012 to 2017.
Her research expertise is in the area of chronic illness among rural and underserved populations. Hutson studies the advanced care planning needs of persons living with HIV/AIDS as well as the human consequences of living at high genetic risk of cancer.
She has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other sponsors.
