Transcript 1986 Monumental Changes Magazine 1987 In the summer of 1986, the University of Houston announced a major partnership joining the University with businesses and local, Administration awarded the University $5.5 million to fund a Center for the Commercialization of Space to develop space vacuum epitaxy technology. Drs. Paul Chu and Alex Ignatiev, professors of physics, head the research effort that uses the vacuum of space to produce the next generation of microelectronics. This center is supported by NASA, the state, the University and a consortium of industries and will have total funding of over $15 million. Technology transfer ventures between University basic research programs and industries interested in developing the commercial aspects of new discoveries, dramatically illustrate the contributions of University research to the city and state's economic development efforts. UH has accomplished one of the most dramatic research expansions in the nation with research expenditures doubling from $11.5 million in fiscal year 83 to over $23 million in fiscal year 86. The University's mission is to support the creative process and the development of new knowledge and to transfer that knowledge to students and the community. Richard L. Van Horn* President University of Houston Nearly a year ago, the Coordinating Board of the Texas College and University System released the list of projects to receive funds from the state's new $35 million Texas Advanced Technology Research Program (TATR). Eighteen projects at the University of Houston were funded for more than $7.1 million. "I think this is a tribute to the quality of our faculty and will be an excellent benefit to the University and the city," Dr. Richard Van Horn, UH President said. The additional TATR funding will push UH research funding to an all-time high, somewhere between $23 and $25 million for fiscal year 1986, more than double the total research funding in 1983. Last fiscal year, the campus received $16.4 million in new funding, with more than $11 million dollars coming from federal sources. This recent funding success anchors UH among the top three non-medical research universities in the state for external research funding, according to Julie Norris, Director of the Office of Sponsored Programs. The trend supports a statement made by Lt. Gov. William P. Hobby, citing the University as one of three Texas universities that should be expanded into nationally recognized research institutions. He said that research expansion of UH as well as Texas Tech University in Lubbock and a university in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, would ensure the economic vitality of Texas. Why did the campus com pete so well for this money? Most administrators point to faculty quality. By hiring young faculty and nurturing their research careers, UH has developed professors with growing reputations. Additionally, researchers made certain proposals that were Texas-oriented, explaining how the research will help Texas compete for high- technology industry. The physics department attracted the most funding with four projects receiving $1.63 million. Overall, nine projects in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics received nearly $3.15 million, seven projects in the Cullen College of Engineering received $3 million, one project in the College of Optometry received $650,000 and one project with the Allied Geophysical Laboratories re ceived $270,000. The bulk of the University research is in one of three fields; biotechnology, materials science and microelectronics but other research areas include agriculture, aerospace, energy and physics. Specific projects include: Dr. Edgar Bering, physics, $350,000 for the development of a miniaturized, energy sensitive x-ray video camera for aerospace and related research. Dr. Russell Geanangle, chemistry, $250,000 to research new hybrid materials. Dr. Charles Goochee, chemical engineering, $515,000 to research the response of microbial structures and cells to environmental stress. Dr. Thomas Hsu, civil engineering, $617,000 to study high performance concrete and other materials. 154
