The Office of Research and Creative Activity (ORCA) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will host a one-hour workshop on the Department of Defense (DoD) and the National Strategic Research Institute (NSRI) for UNO faculty and staff on Wednesday, Jan. 30, from Noon - 1 P.M. in the Milo Bail Student Center, room 302. The workshop is free for UNO attendees.
The grant-writing workshop will provide an overview of DoD research interests, DoD Research Agencies (including DTRA, DARPA, ONR, and others), broad agency announcements, and how NSRI can help develop DoD related research. This will be of interest to those who perform basic, applied, or social science research with potential defense applications.
This workshop will be presented by Dr. Josh Santarpia, NSRI Research Director and UNMC Associate Professor. Dr. Santarpia has been working with the Department of Defense to ensure the Transport Isolation System (TIS) used to transport patients with highly contagious diseases works safely and efficiently. The TIS was first used after the Ebola virus outbreak in 2014.
