A group of historically black universities across the country has been selected for an initiative to bring more of the technology created by their research out of the lab to create new revenue, companies and jobs.
N.C. A&T is one of 15 schools selected for the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Innovation and Entrepreneurship Collaborative. A total of 44 schools applied to join the project. N.C. A&T and Fayetteville State University were selected from North Carolina.
“Commercializing technology generated by A&T researchers will generate revenue for the university and holds the potential for new companies and jobs for Greensboro and the Piedmont Triad,” said Wayne Szafranski, assistant vice chancellor for outreach and economic development.
“This is an area where A&T already has had some success, and we know we have more technology with commercial potential. This program will help us create greater awareness and ability, all across the campus, to capitalize on the technology our faculty and students are creating.”
An advocate for young black men and an advocate for entrepreneurs are two young professionals at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University who have been recognized among the 2014 “40 Leaders Under 40” in the Piedmont Triad by The Business Journal.
Dr. Anthony Graham, chairman of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and Mr. Louis Judge III, the university’s director of technology transfer, received their awards February 20.
Details on both follow the jump.
Darwin Day is observed on February 12 each year. This year in Greensboro, everyone was too busy thinking about how to get home from work to have any thoughts deeper than our seven inches of snow. Today, just about everyone is stuck at home, so we all can think as deeply as we please about anything. Perhaps global warming will relieve humanity of the need to evolve into an animal that can cope with snow.
There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species
Creation is not an event that happened in 4004 BC; it is a process that began some 10 billion years ago and is still under way.
Theodosius Dobzhansky, “Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution”
Evolution, of course, is not something that simply applies to life here on earth; it applies to the whole universe.
Each human being exists because there’s something they have to offer for the evolution of the universe that only they can fulfill.
Of course in science there are things that are open to doubt and things need to be discussed. But among the things that science does know, evolution is about as certain as anything we know.
Evolution is an indispensable component of any satisfying explanation of our psychology.
I’m still my parent’s child, I’m still me, but I made a choice. I evolved into Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. I think it has to do with evolution.
Darwin’s theory of evolution is a framework by which we understand the diversity of life on Earth.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I want to grow. I want to be better. You grow. We all grow. We’re made to grow. You either evolve, or you disappear.
As far as I’m concerned, if there is a supreme being then He chose organic evolution as a way of bringing into existence the natural world … which doesn’t seem to me to be necessarily blasphemous at all.
The Seeding Postdoctoral Innovators in Research and Education (SPIRE) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at UNC-CH is funded by the National Institute for General Medical Sciences.
SPIRE’s goal is to provide tomorrow’s science scholars and educators with a holistic approach to postgraduate professional development. SPIRE blends an outstanding research environment with broad professional development activities and hands-on classroom experiences for scientists who want to combine research with undergraduate and graduate education.
