"The rising level of research funding in Sao Paulo has allowed their scientists to focus on important problems rather than being overwhelmed with finding financial resources for their studies," said Janies. "By taking the lead to organize this symposium, Ohio State is opening doors for much broader collaborations between Brazil and the United States.
