NIA Professor in Residence Awarded MUREP Funding

Dr. William B. Moore, Professor in Residence from Hampton University (HU) at NIA, will serve as the Principal Investigator for a newly awarded project from NASA. HU was one of the ten minority serving universities selected by NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) to receive funding for the five year project to promote STEM literacy and enhance and sustain the capability of institutions to perform NASA-related research and education. The HU/NIA project will establish the Center for Atmospheric Research Education (CARE) at HU and will include a component to support journalism and marketing students to work with NIA outreach staff to produce media articles, interstitials, videos, and social media posts organized through a framework, “Mysteries of the Atmosphere.” The outreach materials will be published through the HU web, TV and radio, and NIA’s existing education and public outreach programs.
