TWU Announces Third Set of Chancellor's Research Fellows

10/16/03


DENTON — Ten Texas Woman's University faculty have been selected as Chancellor's Research Fellows for 2003-2004.

The program, now in its third year, pairs faculty with strong potential for gaining external research funding with mentors who have been successful at obtaining funds from federal agencies or other sources and at publishing their research.

This year’s protégés and mentors are: Dr. Mark Britt, assistant professor of chemistry and physics, who will be mentored by Dr. James Johnson, professor of chemistry and physics; Dr. Ann Malecha, assistant professor of nursing, who will be mentored by Dr. Judith McFarlane, professor of nursing; Dr. Kyle Biggerstaff, assistant professor of kinesiology, who will be mentored by Dr. Barney Sanborn, professor of kinesiology; Dr. Anne Stiles, professor of nursing, who will be mentored by Dr. Patti Hamilton, professor of nursing; and Dr. Junehee Kwon, assistant professor of nutrition and food sciences, who will be mentored by Dr. Carolyn Bednar, professor of nutrition and food sciences.

Protégés receive awards of $3,000 and mentors receive $1,500 to use for their individual research needs. Funding was provided by the TWU Chancellor’s Circle and the TWU Foundation.

Mentors assist their protégés in developing their research agendas and grant applications.

Protégés are responsible for preparing at least one proposal for external funding during the fellowship year or the following academic year. Both mentors and protégés participate in research roundtables where topics such as finding funding proposals and proposal review and critique are discussed.
