Dr. David Crowe, Associate Professor of Biology, was featured as the project spotlight speaker at the 2017 Grant Recognition Luncheon. Professor Crowe discussed his latest research in neuroscience, specifically in the mental disorder schizophrenia. Dr.Crowe and his collaborator, Matthew Chafee, recently received an award from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the cause of this disease. They are exploring whether schizophrenia could be caused by disruptions to the normal timing of electrical impulses in the brain.
The purpose of the Grant Recognition Luncheon, hosted by the Office of Sponsored Programs, is to celebrate and recognize the efforts of Augsburg faculty and staff in grant seeking. Grants at Augsburg provide direct financial support for individual scholarship and inquiry, enable students to engage in research and access specialized programs that support learning and retention, and provide opportunities for deeper engagement and collaboration, both on our campus and within our community.
To see how faculty and staff at Augsburg have been engaged in grant-seeking over the past year, please view the program.
