Bouvé researchers awarded seed grants through Northeastern, University College Dublin partnership

Congratulations to Bouvé College’s Matthew Yarossi, Joshua Stefanik, and Justin Manjourides whose research projects have been awarded funding through a partnership between Northeastern University and University College Dublin.

Earlier this year, the two institutions worked to extend their longstanding partnership to strengthen their shared focus on global challenges in healthcare. They announced a joint grant competition, funded equally by both institutions, to deepen existing research collaborations and plant the seeds that grow new cross-institutional relationships.

Northeastern and UCD chose five collaborative research teams they say were strong, interdisciplinary applications that aligned closely at the cross-section of the pre-determined themes of Building a healthy world and Transforming through digital technology.
