Missouri University of Science and Technology is investing in Missouri Distinguished Professorships to lead the university to a new era of convergent research, in which transdisciplinary teams work at the intersection of science, technology and society.
Research themes of interest include, but are not limited to, precision medicine and health solutions, engineering for extremes, sustainable extraction and energy utilization, revitalizing the nation’s infrastructure, advanced manufacturing, smart systems, and science policy.
The Missouri Distinguished Professors will join Missouri S&T faculty recognized annually with prestigious awards nationally and internationally; honored locally with campus awards and distinguished professorships; and whose research has been growing substantially over the past decade. The president of the University of Missouri System has challenged Missouri S&T to double research expenditures in the next five years. This represents a transformational period in university history and an exciting new era of opportunity and innovation.
