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.
