New IQ Center Will Enhance Science at W&L The first phase of the new Integrative and Quantitative (IQ) Center at Washington and Lee University is underway, with a projected opening date of June 2013. The center will be located on the second floor of the Telford Science Library and is supported by a $1 million grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) as well as funds from the university and individual donors.
Dr. Joel Kuehner receives NSF Grant Joel Kuehner, associate professor of physics and engineering at Washington and Lee University, has received a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue his research into how two different fluid streams—fuel and air, for example—mix at supersonic speeds.
Dr. David Marsh receives NSF Grant David Marsh, professor of biology at Washington and Lee University, has received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a new project that will link networks of undergraduate classes to carry out collaborative scientific research. Marsh will work in collaboration with the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The total amount of the NSF grant is $242,000 (W&L's component is $113,000) and was received through the Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science program.
