2010 CITRIS Seed Funding Awards

We are pleased to announce that the seed funding awards for CITRIS have
been chosen. The projects this year are from all four CITRIS campuses:
4 from UC Davis (25% of submitted), 4 from UC Santa Cruz (27% of
submitted), 7 from UC Merced (64% of submitted), and 12 from UC
Berkeley (33% of submitted). Of these 27 projects, 12 of them (44%) are
multi-campus, with PIs from a wide variety of departments. We'd like to
give special recognition to the researchers from UC Merced, from which
86% of the funded proposals are multi-campus. Thank you to all who
submitted innovative proposals. We look forward to the discoveries and
developments that will arise as a result of this round of funding.
