We are thrilled to announce that Belinda Sturm, director of Kansas NSF EPSCoR and principal investigator for ARISE, will serve as the interim vice chancellor for research at the University of Kansas until the position is filled.

Her leadership efforts for the ARISE project and Kansas NSF EPSCoR will continue during this interim stint, strengthened with the ongoing shared project management by the ARISE theme leaders and management team.
