Nine exploratory projects, from an effort to exploit inter-microbial warfare in the search for new antibiotics to the development of artificial intelligence for the transcription of ancient documents, have been selected to receive support through the Dean for Research Innovation Funds, including a project led by AOS Faculty Member Ching-Yao LaiLai, assistant professor of geosciences, will apply an approach called physics-informed deep learning to find the fundamental flow law of ice from satellite data and build better predictions of ice dynamics in a changing climate.

The program funds research initiatives in the natural sciences that are at early stages and may not qualify for external funding, as well as new investigations in the humanities and new industrial collaborations.
