DENTON – Continuing its support of faculty research, Texas Woman’s University has announced 10 Chancellor’s Research Fellows for 2008-2009.

“The program pairs less-experienced faculty protégés who have strong potential for gaining external research funding with senior faculty mentors who have been successful at obtaining funds from federal agencies or other sources and have published their research,” said Dr. Jo Ann Engelbrecht, director of research and sponsored programs at TWU.

This year’s protégés and mentors are: Dr. Patricia Casey, teacher education, who will be mentored by Dr. Charlotte (Barney) Sanborn, kinesiology; Dr. Kimberly Booker, psychology and philosophy, who will be mentored by Dr. Lynda Uphouse, biology. Dr. Noralyn Pickens, occupational therapy – Dallas, who will be mentored by Dr. Susan Sheriff, nursing – Dallas; Dr. Pushkala Raman, School of Management, who will be mentored by Dr. Nancy DiMarco, Institute for Women's Health and nutrition and food sciences; and Dr. Jian Zhang, mathematics and computer science, who will be mentored by Dr. Richard Sheardy, chemistry and physics.

Protégés and mentors receive monetary awards to use for their individual research needs. The program is now in its eighth year and funding is provided by the TWU Chancellor’s Circle and the TWU Foundation.

Mentors assist their protégés in developing their research agendas and proposals. Protégés are responsible for preparing at least one grant application for external funding during the fellowship year or the following academic year. Both mentors and protégés participate in research roundtables where topics such as locating funding opportunities and proposal review and critique are discussed.
