After its first successful year, the SRP program has been expanded adding Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory to the program that originated with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. With three labs, there is even great opportunity for faculty and staff to collaborate on exciting research projects while engaging students from underrepresented backgrounds.
“We are delighted that LLNL and Sandia have decided to join in the SRP program”, said Dr. Mary Ann Leung, President of SHI. The expansion of the program will allow new DOE labs access to great talent that they might not otherwise find.
With the addition of two more national laboratories, the program expanded the meeting attendance and invited 28 faculty from a variety of institutions across the United States including: Savannah State University, Spelman College, Fayetteville State University, University of Puerto Rico, Seattle Pacific University, and many more.
The 2016 SRP matching meeting will be held in December at Lawrence Berkeley Lab and we are looking forward to a productive and lively meeting.
