Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Congratulations to Wilner/UGA Foundation Professor in International Law Harlan G. Cohen and Assistant Professor Jason A. Cade. Both were part of UGA interdisciplinary teams that received research awards through the Presidential Interdisciplinary Seed Grant Program. Only 12 faculty teams were selected out of more than 150 that submitted proposals. 

Cohen’s project is titled “Forecasting the threat of cyber attacks, nation by nation,” and his team includes faculty members from UGA’s Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Public and International Affairs as well as a political scientist from the State University of New York.

Cade will collaborate on a project titled “Building a network of cultural liaisons to improve the health and well-being of Athens-area Latinos” with faculty from the College of Education, the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Public Health, the School of Social Work, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute and the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development.

The review team selected winning proposals based on demonstrated potential to address key grand challenges and to generate new external funding in the future. Inclusion of public service and outreach components also was considered, among other criteria.
