2018 Women in STEM award winners

Ten women scientists at the University of New Mexico have been selected for the 2018 Women in STEM awards. Their work on eight separate projects includes research on smart grass that could generate energy, the effects of head injuries in professional fighters and better ways to take medicine.

Other winners of the research awards will consider how to create multiscale modeling of swarm dynamics, how to train communication partners for people with autism and how a zebrafish can be a model for studying neuroimmune interactions. In addition, award recipients will look at how children recover from natural disasters, as well as how to optimize network resources. Read more here.
