The Louisiana Space Grant Consortium has selected the research project “Integrating Mathematical Models of Bioprocesses for the NASA-BIOSYS Project” proposed by Dr. Dhan Lord B. Fortela (Principal Investigator) as one of the recipients of the LaSPACE Undergraduate Research Assistantship (LURA) Award for the school year 2019-2020.

“The intent of the LURA program is to supplement and enhance the undergraduate academic curriculum by providing the science/engineering student with a hands-on, mentored research experience relevant to space sciences. A LURA project is a joint effort between a faculty researcher, who serves as mentor and project Principal Investigator, and an undergraduate research assistant.” - LaSPACE
