Benefits of BRIC Support
BRIC provides laboratory space and start-up funds for pilot project and new research activities, faculty development opportunities, support for attending and presenting at professional conferences and facilitate research collaborations between WSSU faculty and faculty at other universities in support of WSSU faculty research endeavors. WSSU faculty interested in affiliating with BRIC must meet the criteria identified previously in Research Activities section. The progress of each WSSU researcher, with regard to research productivity, intramural collaboration, commitment of the investigators to ensure WSSU students with research exposure, peer-reviewed publications, extramural funding will be reviewed annually for continued alignment with the strategic goals of WSSU and the overall mission of BRIC. To maintain the integrity of the goals and specific aims of the center, BRIC will be unable to provide laboratory space, research project funding or travel support for research investigators who are unable to meet the productivity criteria for success within two years of initial support.
