The University of New Mexico recently welcomed Dr. Robin Staffin, Director of Basic Research, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), to discuss DoD basic research programs and opportunities for faculty and students. The visit included meetings with University leadership, faculty and students about the on-going relationship between DoD and UNM. Faculty from across campus discussed their active research projects in DoD areas of interest including engineered biology, quantum information science, engineered optical materials, neuroscience, human and social behavior, political science and artificial intelligence/machine learning.
During an interactive information session, Dr. Staffin stressed the importance of basic research, highlighting relevant basic research programs and opportunities at DoD and addressed questions and comments from the audience. Dr. Staffin toured research laboratory facilities at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Center for High Technology Materials. This visit was made possible by the Office of Government and Community Relations (http://govrel.unm.edu) and the Office of the Vice President for Research (http://research.unm.edu).

Vince Calhoun’s warm smile deeply contrasts with the cold plastic machine at the center of his distinguished career. During the last quarter century, his research has focused on creating algorithms used in the fMRI scanner to map electrical currents via blood moving through the human brain. "We need to maximize our ability to see what’s impacted in the brain so we can understand how mental ilnesses work” - Vince Calhoun, executive director, Mind Research Network
