Geoscience students with mobility impairments will soon have help exploring caves to meet graduation requirements. An announcement on the Ohio Supercomputer Center site explains, "The two-year proof-of-concept research project, 'Expanding Geoscience Diversity through Simulated Field Environments for Students with Physical Disabilities,' seeks an alternative environment to the physically demanding conditions encountered during field study, conditions that have led to a an underrepresentation of graduates with mobility impairments in the geosciences."  Learn more about the project at: http://www.osc.edu/press/releases/2011/Mammoth.shtml

A recent story on The Roanoke Times site explains how Virginia Tech's seven research institutes are combining traditional laboratory research with high-performance computing to increase revenue and raise the university's international visibility. "Sponsored research contracts awarded through the institutes -- which employ more than 600 -- accounted for $65 million of the $252 million in total university research funding in 2010-11," the article says. The article also includes an interesting table that compares Virginia Tech's research centers.
