Auburn University researchers land $5 million in support

Auburn University President Steven Leath announced Thursday that 11 research teams at the school will benefit from a $5 million investment in their work.

"Auburn research is on the move," Leath said in a press statement. "Our world-renowned faculty are leading Auburn in our drive to solve problems, provide real-world benefits and serve the social good."

The investment is part of the Presidential Awards for Interdisciplinary Research (PAIR), a program Leath launched in December. Leath received 101 proposals from researchers at Auburn, and selected 11 potentially life-changing projects to invest in. The funding will span three years, and PAIR is modeled after a research program Leath started while president of Iowa State University.
