The National Science Foundation-Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology has awarded Alabama State University a five-year $1.75 million grant to continue its Historically Black College and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP).

The major goal of the grant is to help ASU strengthen the undergraduate curricula, research, recruitment and retention activities in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), with an emphasis in the areas of computational biology and nanobiotechnology.

Dr. Shree R. Singh, director of the Center for NanoBiotechnology and Life Sciences Research at ASU and professor of microbiology, said the HBCU-UP program has been helpful to all STEM departments, including biology, math, computer science, physical science and more.

"The program supports undergraduate student research, curricula development and student training in the areas of computational biology and nanobiotechnology," Singh said.
