CAHS Faculty and Research Scientists Participate in 2017 TEES Annual Meeting

Faculty and research scientists from the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences participated in 2017 Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) annual research meeting which was held at Prairie View A&M University’s Agriculture and Business building May 25-26. During this two-day meeting, participants from Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) had the opportunity to interact with each other and discuss the opportunities to explore joint research proposals.

Eighteen multi-disciplinary teams developed outlines of potential research projects in the area of energy, information system and sensing, and health.  These teams competed for a one-time $25,000 seed money grant.  All eighteen proposals were given $2,500 to use in their effort to further develop their idea into proposals that will be submitted for funding to any state or federal funding agencies.

Andrea McDonald, CAHS faculty member, and Ali Fares, Interim Associate Director for Research, were members of two of the eighteen teams; their two teams will be working on Nutrition and Flood related projects, respectively.
