The STEM Women’s Interdisciplinary Group, containing three College of Engineering Faculty members, has received one of the four new mutual mentoring grants, funded for up to $6,000 a year, by the UMass ADVANCE team. The group aims to support research collaboration through plans to help develop “high risk-high reward” research proposals by bringing together disparate scientific groups with overlapping research interests in the area of “Particles and Polymers in Biofilms.” Among other UMass faculty, the STEM Women’s Interdisciplinary Group includes Dr. Caitlyn Butler of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department and Dr. Sarah Perry and Dr. Jessica Schiffman of the Chemical Engineering Department.
