Alabama Water Institute Interdisciplinary Innovation Program offers funding support for new research
The Alabama Water Institute’s Interdisciplinary Innovation, or I2, Program is designed to increase the rate of competitive federal and foundation grant submissions for affiliated faculty members at The University of Alabama. The program supports new and groundbreaking research proposed by interdisciplinary research teams, and projects should address societal needs of vital water resources.
Since its inception in 2019, several projects have been funded by the I2 Program. The first project was submitted by lead principle investigator Amanda Koh, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, and co-PI Tyler Hodges, assistant professor of biological sciences. The goal of their project is to develop new types of foam to reduce contamination by metals, hormone mimics and pesticides and herbicides, which will promote global access to clean water.
