Pitt gets $100k for researcher recruitment, labs

Gov. Edward G. Rendell announced this week that 18 Pennsylvania colleges, universities, academic medical institutions and research institutions, including Pitt, will be better able to recruit top faculty researchers in advanced knowledge areas with the help of a new state investment. Pitt’s piece of the $2.5 million pie is $100,000.

Rendell said the $2.5 million investment from the Keystone Innovation Starter Kit program will help local economies, serve as a driver for the commonwealth’s economic growth and help to cement Pennsylvania’s reputation as a world-class leader in faculty recruitment and advanced technology.

In addition, discretionary funds also can be used by researchers to develop labs, staff and equipment in order to leverage private funding for their research.
