eResearch Seminar and Fellowships

The CeR has sponsored digital and internet-based research and creative activity through a weekly seminar series involving faculty-student teams from across the University of Missouri campus. Students were funded with eResearch fellowships carrying a stipend, and research teams made presentations to the interdisciplinary seminar each week. Participation included both undergraduate and graduate students from all MU colleges: Agriculture, Arts and Science, Business, Education, Engineering, Health Professions, Human Environmental Sciences, Journalism, Law, Medicine, Nursing, and Veterinary Medicine. The projects below offer a sense of what the eResearch Fellowship program supported. It is hoped that a version of this initiative will resume in the future.
