Interdisciplinary Faculty Team Lands $1 Million NSF Grant for New Master’s Program

A $1 million National Science Foundation S-STEM training grant will enable NC State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to create a new interdisciplinary master’s program for students from underrepresented groups.

The Interdisciplinary Biochemistry Graduate Program will provide tuition for 20 master’s students in the Department of Molecular and Structural Biochemistry over five years.

The grant is focused on research areas in nutrition and metabolic regulation that link biochemistry to applications in the departments of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences; Plant and Microbial Biology; Animal Science and Poultry Science. The grant co-PIs are April Fogelman, assistant professor of nutrition sciences; Michael Goshe, associate professor of biochemistry; Terri Long, associate professor of plant biology; and Tamara Young, associate professor of education.
