We are really excited and proud to announce that our research team just won a $50k Rapid Response Research (or RAPID) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant proposal titled “Synergistic Impacts of Corrosive Water and Interrupted Corrosion Control on Chemical/Microbiological Water Quality: Flint, MI.” was submitted to NSF in late July.
RAPID grants are “used for proposals having a severe urgency…., including quick-response research on natural or anthropogenic disasters and similar unanticipated events.”
