NOAA awards $22.5 million to Harbor Branch/FAU and UNCW for new cooperative institute
Date:5/12/2009

with NOAA for many years. This partnership provides us with even greater opportunities to leverage the leadership, innovation and ocean research expertise of UNCW's Center for Marine Science and FAU's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute to support areas of NOAA interest."

Dr. Shirley A. Pomponi from HBOI/FAU will serve as the executive director and co-principal investigator of the institute and Dr. Daniel Baden from UNCW will serve as the managing director and co-principal investigator. Baden is the William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Marine Sciences and director of the UNCW Center for Marine Science, home to 35 faculty members who collaborate to foster a multidisciplinary approach to questions in basic marine research. Pomponi has been with HBOI since 1984, most recently as the executive director. She has been instrumental in the institution's drug discovery program and has led numerous research expeditions.

"We are extremely proud of the contributions and research expertise of these exceptional scientists from FAU and UNCW," said Pritchett. "This was a highly competitive national award and thanks to their efforts and commitment, our two organizations, working together with our partners, will be in the forefront of ocean exploration and helping to advance products and tools that enhance NOAA's operational mission."

Collaboration on this joint effort with FAU and UNCW started with a serendipitous, initial dialogue between Pritchett and McFarland, who were former colleagues at Auburn University. The two co-principal investigators also have a long history, having been graduate students together at the University of Miami in the 1970s; Pomponi at RSMAS, and Baden at the School of Medicine. UNCW and FAU brainstormed and explored the possibility of pursuing this important project jointly. As a result, the proposal submitted by FAU and UNCW was selected from among a pool of top contenders to spearhead the institute.
