The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently informed Dr. Victor Wacham Mbarika of the selection of his proposal for funding by NSF in the amount of $500,000 over a five-year period. The Human Centered Computing Cluster of NSF selected Dr. Mbarika's proposal from among many others from universities across the country.
His submission entitled "CAREER: Information Technology Transfer to Developing Countries: An E-Medicine Model for Sub-Saharan Africa" falls in line with the state's current emphasis on economic and technology development.
Dr. Mbarika is a faculty member in the College of Business. The funding of his proposal will enhance and contribute positively to the College's effort to expand its international initiatives and programs, especially in under-developed countries in Africa and elsewhere.
Dr. Mbarika is to be commended, as well as the College of Business and the Office of Sponsored Research.
