Shamma, Kanold receive DURIP funding

Two ISR faculty members have won Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) funding.

Professor Shihab Shamma (ECE/ISR) received an award from the Office of Naval Research for "Research in audio-visual saliency and attention."

ISR-affiliated Assistant Professor Patrick Kanold (Biology) received an Air Force Office of Scientific Research award for “Optical stimulation to probe function and structure of microcircuits in auditory cortex of the brain.”

The awards are the result of a merit competition for funding, and Shamma and Kanold are two of 165 recipients nationwide. The Defense University Research Instrumentation Program supports the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new university capabilities to perform cutting-edge defense research. The program meets a critical need by enabling university researchers to purchase scientific equipment costing $50,000 or more to conduct DoD-relevant research. Researchers generally have difficulty purchasing instruments costing that much under research contracts and grants.
