UC San Diego researchers receive $14 million from NSF for 10 new information technology projects

San Diego, Sept. 17, 2003 -- Researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) will receive more than $14.3 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten new projects in the information-technology arena. Twenty-one faculty members and researchers will investigate topics ranging from how to make cryptography easier to use, to the development of better computer simulations of cell physiology.

Today the NSF announced eight large awards from its Information Technology Research (ITR) program, with UCSD participating in three of the projects. Large ITR projects focus on long-term innovations through coordinated research and education efforts at the intersection of computer science and other science and engineering fields. Researchers from the Jacobs School of Engineering, San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology [Cal-(IT)] will lead UCSD involvement in the largest projects. (All dollar figures at the end of project description represent funding to UCSD entities.)

Large ITRs

  • Constructing a "Family Tree" for Life on Earth. PI: SDSC director Francine Berman. Co-PI: Philip Bourne (SDSC, School of Medicine/Pharmacology). This project is part of a wider $11.6 million collaborative ITR led by University of New Mexico professor Bernard Moret, and involves ten other universities and the American Museum of Natural History. This project will develop new analytical techniques and harness the power of many supercomputers around the world to map the evolutionary relationships among all species of living organisms. $4.1 million 2003-08
  • Responding to the Unexpected. PI: Cal-(IT) UCSD division director Ramesh Rao. Co-PIs: Bhaskar Rao, Mohan Trivedi (Electrical and Computer Engineering). This project is part of an overall $12.5 million collaborative ITR among five universities, led by UC Irvine professor Sharad Mehro
